I think they really do represent Canada.
We’re patriotic, but not in a ‘GOD BLESS CANADA!’ sort of way. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We’re casual and fun.
And I really like that they’re unisex.
I think some of the countries that are dressed to the nines (with women in skirts and men in pants) look really silly.
Like Germany! Women in pink, men in blue. They remind me of tampons.
