And for several years we have had a flag series of stamps, some of which I have already shown and you can see here. Interestingly, this flag series are for domestic stamps, so they do not end up flying around the world.
Pachena Point, British Columbia, located along a dangerous stretch of the western coastline, on Vancouver Island.
"As the eye moves across the panel from left to right, you can almost hear the sound of the flag flapping in the wind," says Liz Wong, Manager of Stamp Design and Production at Canada Post. "It really brings out that deep sense of national pride."
And this example from a historic mills series of the Watson's Mill in Manotick, outside Ottawa. This stamp, released in 2010, was cancelled in Manotick for the 150th anniversary of the mill. There is a lot of history and and a tragic love story associated with the mill which you can read about here.

In celebration of Canada's participation in the Games of the XXIX Olympiad and also in recognition of the more than 340 athletes who will proudly represent our country, Canada Post is issuing a domestic rate (52¢) stamp on July 18, 2008.
(oops, which I now see is next week's theme)
