The mission of this painting was to “wrap the Canadian Flag in Canadian art”. The historic Flag Committee was formed in 1964 to find the elusive symbol that would be used around the globe to ever after identify the uniqueness of Canada. The Group of Seven and Tom Thomson had a similar goal in the early 20th century – to create a distinctly Canadian expression of art. The Group of One (that’s me) wanted to achieve the same goal in the early 21st century. Canada is distinctive. The land, water and weather are unique. The Canadian Flag is truly unique and the one of the most recognized symbols world-wide.
