Hotel Vancouver, Canada




H Patterns

Other Collector Plates

This is the third hotel to be named 'Hotel Vancouver'. The first was a five-story, brick structure that looked and functioned much like a farmhouse.

The second, built from 1912-1916, and opened in 1916, became the meeting place for Vancouver society. The second Hotel Vancouver was turned into a government administration building during World War II and torn down in 1949.

The present Hotel Vancouver took 11 years to build because construction was halted for five years during the Great Depression. It was started by the Canadian National Railway but was finally completed under a joint operating agreement with the Canadian Pacific Railway. It was opened in May of 1939, in time for the Royal visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth at a final cost of $12 million.

A $70 million restoration in the mid 1990s has ensured that The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver remains at the very forefront of Vancouver's best hotels.

Lady's Slipper

Prince Edward Island

The Lady's Slipper was adopted as the provincial flower on April 25, 1947. The orchid gets its name from the shape of its petals which form a pouch somewhat like a slipper. The Lady's Slipper blooms in late May and June and grows in shady and moist woodlands. These delicate flowers should not be picked, nor transplanted, as they will rarely survive a change of habitat.

Madonna Lily

Quebec

The Madonna lily was Quebec’s flower for 36 years. It looks like the heraldic fleur-de-lis on Quebec’s flag. The Madonna lily is the symbol of French culture in France and Québec, but it does not grow naturally in the province. Therefore, in 1999 Quebec chose a new flower that grows throughout the province: the blue flag iris

Mayflower

Nova Scotia
The delicate pink mayflower, blooming in the forest glades in early spring, signifies Nova Scotia's coming of age. As far back as 1820 the mayflower emerged as a native patriotic symbol, suggesting high achievement in the face of adversity. The humble evergreen from the native countryside blossoms amid the last remaining snows of winter. From the 1830s through the end of the century, the emblematic mayflower was celebrated in songs, poetry, and political oratory. It graced the Lieutenant-Governor's chain of state, the stamps and coins of the province, and the decorative brass of its militia. Citizens displayed it on lapels, and banners, and at least two newspapers were named for the mayflower. In 1901 by an Act of the Legislature, the Trailing Arbutus (Epigaea repens), commonly known as the mayflower, was declared to be the Provincial Flower of Nova Scotia, and to have been so from time immemorial.
Mountain Avens

Northwest Territories
The Floral Emblem was adopted by the Council of the Northwest Territories when it enacted the Floral Emblem Ordinance in June 1957. The Mountain Avens (Dryas octopetala) has narrow basal leaves and supports a single white and yellow flower on a short stem. This member of the rose family grows abundantly in the eastern and central Arctic, as well as in parts of the Mackenzie region. It is found in open and well-drained areas, especially on high or rocky ground.

New Brunswick Tartan

The provincial tartan was designed by the Loomcrofters of Gagetown, N.B., and officially adopted in 1959. It is registered at the Court of The Lord Lyon, King of Arms in Scotland . Represented in the design are the forest green of lumbering, the meadow green of agriculture, the blue of coastal and inland waters, all interwoven with gold, a symbol of the province's potential wealth. The red blocks represent the loyalty and devotion of the early Loyalist settlers and the
Royal New Brunswick Regiment.

Nova Scotia Tartan
The Nova Scotia Tartan was the first provincial tartan in Canada. It reflects the profound contribution of the Scots to the founding of Nova Scotia, and the pioneer settlement of the old Royal Province. The very name Nova Scotia resounds with early Scottish colonial ambition; in Jacobean Latin it meant New Scotland. Being one among many large groups of settlers in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Scots brought with them the powerful lore of the Highlands. From this, the folk art revival of the present century brought forth Nova Scotia's recent emblem. Originally designed by Bessie Murray in 1953 for the agricultural exhibition in Truro, the popular tartan was adopted by the Province in 1955 through an Order in Council. It was later submitted for approval of the Court of the Lord Lyon King of Arms and, in 1956, was registered with Her Majesty's Register Office in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1964, the Tartan Act was passed by the House of Assembly. A district tartan that may be worn by anyone, its blue and white are for the surf-ridden sea, greens for the forests, red for the royal lion on the Arms of Nova Scotia, and gold for the province's historic Royal Charter

Pitcher Plant

Newfoundland and Labrador

Although it was not declared the provincial flower of Newfoundland and Labrador until 1954, this strange plant appeared on the Newfoundland penny during the late 1880s. The pitcher plant is found primarily in bogs and marshland throughout the province. It has a large wine-red flower with a red and gold centre, and hollow pitcher-shaped leaves are attached to the base of the stem. An insectivorous plant, it feeds off the insects that become trapped inside
when the leaves fill with water.

Prairie Crocus

Manitoba

The floral emblem of Manitoba was officially adopted when an act respecting its adoption was given Royal Assent on March 16, 1906. Accordingly, "The flower known botanically as the anemone patens, and popularly called the crocus, shall be adopted as and deemed to be the floral emblem of the province."

Saskatchewan

The wood lily (Lilium philadelphicum), also known as a Philadelphia lily or prairie lily, is a species of lily native to North America. A variant of the species, the western red lily (L. philadelphicum andinum) was designated Saskatchewan, Canada's floral emblem in 1941.It is featured on the flag of Saskatchewan. This lily grows in moist meadows and semi-wooded areas. With its flaming red blossoms, it stands out brilliantly against a natural green background. The western red lily is a protected species.

Prince Edward Island Tartan

People of Scottish descent make up the largest ethnic group on Prince Edward Island. To recognize their contribution in settling PEI, a design by Mrs. Jean Reed was adopted as our provincial tartan in 1960. The reddish-brown signifies the redness of the soil, the green represents the grass and the trees, the white for the caps on the waves, and the yellow is for the sun.
Purple Violet

New Brunswick

The purple violet (Viola cucullata) is a perennial which flowers from May through July. It is stemless, with leaves and flower stocks growing directly from rootstocks.  The flowers of the purple violet have been used in jams and syrups, and are supposed to have properties to soothe the digestive tract and suppress a cough. The flower was adopted as the New Brunswick  floral emblem in 1936, at the request of the provincial Women's Institute.
