Our stylized design of the Vimy Ridge Memorial represents the victory achieved by Canadian troops in capturing Vimy Ridge in April, 1917. A Victorious Canadian Soldier with helmet held high in celebration is positioned in a Maple Leaf between the modified two white pillars of the Vimy Memorial, represented by a V, both for Vimy and Victory. The marching Soldiers in the base of the image represent the struggles endured and overcome to be Victorious.
The Battle of Vimy Ridge was the first occasion on which all four divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force participated in a battle as a cohesive formation and it became a Canadian national symbol of achievement and sacrifice. For Canada, the Battle of Vimy Ridge became known as “The birth of a Nation”.
