The Canada Gate, one of the entrances to the Green Park, was presented to London by Canada (then the senior Dominion of the British Empire) as part of a memorial scheme dedicated to Queen Victoria (1819-1901). The commission for the gates was won by the Bromsgrove Guild, a company of modern artists and designers associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement, who completed the work and had the gate erected by 1911. The gate is in the same style as those of Buckingham Palace, overlooking it, and it bears the emblems of the seven Canadian provinces of the time.
