The maple leaf has served as a Canadian symbol since the 1700s. Not only has this foliage served as the centerpiece of the National flag for over fifty years but it was also the emblem of the first St. Jean Baptiste Society in North America in 1834 and it was incorporated into the badge of the 100th Regiment of Royal Canadians in 1860. The leaf of the mighty maple is included in both the Ontario and Quebec coat of arms and has appeared on the penny since its first minting.
