RCAF Roundel (L, XL or XXL & Child’s 3 or 6)
As a Commonwealth country, Canada used standard British markings on all of its aircraft until just after the end of WWII, when in 1946, a uniquely Canadian roundel was developed incorporating a maple leaf.
Canadian Pacific Beaver (L, XL or XXL)
In 1886, one year after the “last spike” CP adopted the beaver as its corporate symbol, adding them to a lettered shield that had previously served a the company’s logo. In 1946 the beaver was simplified and the familiar modern script-style lettering introduced.

The Trans-Canada Highway is the world’s third longest national highway, with the main route spanning 7,821 km. The system, approved by the Trans-Canada Highway Act of 1948, was officially opened in 1962 with its distinctive white-on-green maple leaf route markers.
