Our most beloved national symbol

After a month of deliberation on the symbols held dearest by Canadians, By George has determined “the most beloved national symbol.”  Through the last few days we have sought feedback from followers and had direct input from our own By George network and the remaining four top symbols have been ranked. So, here they are — in reverse order — with the last being our # 1.

It gives us great pride to announce the most beloved national symbol here this morning…

# 4 – The Beaver

canuck_30This month By George is in search of the greatest Canadiana symbol.  We have been presiding over head-to-head choices of 64 different symbols of national pride and, currently, we have narrowed the field to “the sweet 16” of Canada.  On our By George Facebook page, we invite our followers to comment on the selections. Certainly, we have had some lively debate; for example, when the Calgary Stampede was selected over the Bluenose. (Should there be a compelling argument or overwhelming outcry about the choice of one of the symbols, or the other, By George will reserve the right to reverse the decision and go with our readership’s favourite.)

.

Our objective is to identify the single-most important symbol of national pride, the most beloved symbol of Canadiana.
