Our logo. The hannunvaakuna or looped square is an ancient symbol (pre-Christian) in Finland that was used for good luck or to ward off bad luck (oldest example, so far, in Finland dates back 1000 years). Also used historically to mark places of interest. Blue lines represent Calgary’s Bow River. Design by Raheel Khan.
