City of Calgary Lapel Pin Program

To support individuals who want to promote our city, The City of Calgary is pleased to offer a lapel pin program.


Q:   What type of pins can I order?
A:    There are three different kinds of pin designs available for ordering:

​​​​​​​​​​​Calgary's Official Crest Pin
​​The design for The City of Calgary’s official crest was chosen through a contest held by The Calgary Herald and adopted officially by City Council as the basis for its Corporate Seal in March, 1902. A few of the symbols included in the crest's imagery are the Rocky Mountains, the Canadian Maple Leaf, the bull buffalo, and the sun setting in the West. 

Calgary's Official Flag Pin
The design for The City of Calgary’s official flag was chosen through a competition conducted by the Centennial of Incorporation Committee. It was adopted officially by City Council on October 3, 1983. The design of the flag, incorporating the white Stetson hat to flow in unison with the letter “C”, symbolizes a harmony between The City of Calgary and the hospitality and spirit of her people

Calgary's Official Floral Emblem (Pasque Flower)
Calgary’s floral emblem, the Anemone Pulsatilla Rubra, more commonly known as the Red Pasque Flower, was chosen through a city-wide survey conducted by the Calgary Horticultural Society and The City of Calgary. It was officially adopted by City Council on July 2, 1991. The Red Pasque Flower is an appropriate symbol for Calgary as it closely resembles the native Prairie Crocus which grows wild in the Calgary area and can be purchased by local gardeners.
