In 1992, Cool to be Canadian held a logo design competition.
Over one hundred submissions were received and many were very inspiring. However, to qualify, the logo design could not employ traditional references to Canada.. (flags, maple leaves, beavers etc.) it had to be in black and white, easily faxed, recognizable from a distance, and simple enough to be reproduced (with permission) by school children.
The logo design currently used by Cool to be Canadian was purchased at a nominal fee, from Richard Michael Fishwick, at the time living in Pointe Claire, Quebec.
Mr. Fishwick then moved to London Ontario, where sadly, he passed away on December 1st 2003.
His contribution to Cool to be Canadian lives on in the logo design he created for us in 1992.
Thank-you for your lasting contribution Richard!
