Pattern Inspiration - Canadian Flower Flags

When I recently visited Ottawa, the capital of Canada, I spotted these gorgeous flags. They were flying all over the city and caught my eye with their wonderful bright colours and stained glass style floral designs.

There was a flag for each of the 10 provinces and 3 territories of Canada, each featuring their official flower. Below you can see, Manitoba - Prairie crocus, British Columbia - Pacific Dogwood, Saskatchewan - Western Red Lily, Northwest Territories - Mountain Avens, Alberta - Wild Rose, Yukon - Fireweed, Nunavut - Purple saxifrage and Newfoundland and Labrador - Purple pitcher plant.
