  • Official Pin of the 2017 Worlds Fair

    My son was on a class field trip to City Hall and while there he picked up one of these lapel pins. I kind of thought that they would wait until we were actually awarded the fair but what do I know about such things.

        I imagine that is used to raise awareness of the bid and not the Expo itself. A maple leaf says Canada to the world at large. Once the bid is won I'd imagine that a different logo will be used.

          Isn't it a bit early to be calling that the "official pin"? We don't even have it in the bag yet.

            They are nice enough, I was given one recently. I'll wear it when I am in Calgary.

              I like the Canadian Maple Leaf on the pin. This Expo is about Canada.

                I give it a 3/10, and those 3 points are awarded for sentimental use of the maple leaf.

                Poor graphic design, horrible "logo" work with the leaf & the kerning seems "off" to me.

                    All teams will have bid pins, I guess this is ours.

                        This sends the wrong message of Canada. All it reminds me of is a dying maple leaf in Autumn.

                          Well I guess it doesn't matter anymore. No fair for Edmonton.
