Who Knew?

I saw this car parked by a local garden centre and was intrigued by the crest combining the Canadian maple leaf with the Swedish three crowns. It turns out that the car belongs to the Swedish Canadian Chamber of Commerce whose mission is "to be a facilitator of and a gateway to business, cultural and social development between Sweden and Canada". Who knew?
