Canada 150 - A Logo To Ponder

The government has ended the competition for a new logo for Canada 150. It's pick is... um... colourful. While the student who designed it collected a cool $5000, she also said the diamonds and colours in her design are not representative of anything in particular. “I just wanted to go with something very simple."

On the www.Canada150.gc.ca Heritage Canada says the four diamonds at the base of the Maple Leaf represent the four provinces that formed Confederation. The nine other diamonds represent the six other provinces and three territories, or something. I guess it's in the eye of the beholder.

What do I see? I see the unholy love child of the NBC peacock and the Klingon Empire.
