I think Canadian Flag would offend the aesthetic preferences of polar bears. Red Maple Leafs? Are you guys nuts?
But then again, if we can open a Tim Horton's there and provide bears with decent treats. Only for a buck (plus or minus).
And Canadians of every colour (the colour palette is essential) will flock to the cold heart of its motherland to have a patriotic muffin and a double double coffee (actually, I prefer double cream, one sugar, but for a better visual, double double is better. Just like a perfect double vision - 20/20).
Or maybe the poles must belong to those who will win the competition of comfortably living (or surviving?) there. Let's have a Knight Tournament and let the best country win!
Substitute "Russia" for "Canada" in this most profound poem about Russia and you will be right on the money (maybe about any country):
Fyodor Tyutchev, Russian poet, 1803–1873
You will not grasp her with your mind
Or cover with a common label,
For Russia is one of a kind —
Believe in her, if you are able...
translated by Anatoly Liberman,
published in "Russian Life in the United States"
