Alberta

british columbia's flag Canada's 8th Province Since 1905

Alberta is offers a diverse landscape as can be seen in the provincial flag. Both the Rocky Mountains and wheat filled plains share this rugged landscape. Because Alberta was the home to many dinosaurs, there are both fossil filled badlands and a booming oil industry. Home to the Calgary stampede, NHL hockey teams and CFL football teams, Alberta is a great place to live or visit. If you want to know more about Alberta also see the photos page.

Flower: Wild Rose

alberta's flower The wild rose was adopted as Alberta's floral emblem in 1930 as the result of a vote amongst the Provinces school children. Blooming in late spring, when the snow melts, this flower is an excellent source of vitamin C. Because of this many animals eat the blooms as a main food source.
