Banners on Confederation Boulevard

Each year, Canadian Heritage flies over 500 banners along Confederation Boulevard, the capital’s ceremonial route in downtown Ottawa–Gatineau. The banners highlight Canada’s provinces and territories and anniversaries of significance.

Seven banners running along Confederation Boulevard

Provincial and territorial banners

The colourful provincial and territorial banners provide a window on Canada. Each year, we focus on a different theme to showcase the character of each part of the country. These banners might focus on themes like floral and animal emblems or provincial and territorial landscapes.
