CBC 74 Gem Cap

Classic seventies iconic logo on a high quality baseball cap


Anyone who walks a dog in the rain (or sun!), and wears glasses, will appreciate the value of a peaked cap. This beaut comes from our friends at Red Canoe, a Canadian heritage brand that celebrates the iconic history and stories of yesteryear.

The CBC 74 Gem Cap features a distinctive geometric logo officially known as “the gem”, which was designed for the CBC in December 1974, and is the most widely recognised symbol of Canada’s version of the BBC.

The main on-air identification featured the logo kaleidoscopically morphing into its form while radiating outward from the centre of the screen on a blue background. This animated version, which first went to air in December 1974, is also known as “The Exploding Pizza.”

The appearance of this logo marked the arrival of full-colour network television service in Canada. The large shape in the middle is the letter C, representing Canada, and the radiating parts of the C symbolise broadcasting. This iconic logo is also referred to simply as the “CBC Pizza”. We think it just looks pretty good on your head – with or without pepperoni.

Red Canoe designs vintage aviation inspired clothing and apparel from a uniquely Canadian perspective; experiences borne from exploring the expansive Canadian wilderness. Bush pilot adventuring and pioneering stories from some of the world’s earliest true heritage brands provides impetus for everything they create, and we think you’ll enjoy their rustic aesthetic as much as we do.
