Everyone loves bears, right? When I was in Havana, there was an art display called Unity Bears. This was a collection of bears painted to represent countries from around the world.
Everyone seemed to be looking for the one that represented his or her country – and I was no exception. Should be easy to find a bear representing Canada –look for one decorated in red and white, maybe with a maple leaf, or a moose, or a beaver, possibly even a hockey stick, or a goalie mask, or a Mountie’s hat. Well, it wasn’t easy at all and several of us Canadians stood around it trying to find out how it represented Canada. Maybe you can figure it out:
Here are some of the other Unity Bears:
I was wondering too how that bear represents Canada. I like how you show that the display
is so close to the cruise port. There’s really no need to take an excursion as there’s lots to see within walking distance of the terminal. I wonder how long the bears will remain there.
I think the bears are there until near the end of May.
And yes, if cruising to Havana, just walk off the ship (taking your passport and tourist visa) and you will find some of the best Havana has to offer.
My only guess is the colors…white, blue….may be referring to the climate, to hockey? There’s no mistaking USA bear in her crown with the torch.
