Through the lens of graphic design, Design Canada follows the transformation of a nation from a colonial outpost to a vibrant and multicultural society and asks the questions: What defines national identity? Is it an anthem? A flag? A logo or icon? How do these elements shape who we are? In the 1960s and 1970s, these issues were explored by an innovative group of Canadian designers, who used design to unify the nation.
