Maple leafs are loaded with meaning. Most frequently seen as the central motif in the flag of Canada, the maple leaf is also known in China and Japan as an emblem of lovers. In North America, settlers placed the maple leafs at the foot of their beds to ward off demons and encourage sexual pleasure. Also in North America, the stork uses maple branches to make nests. So the maple leaf also became a symbol of the love found in welcoming a new child home.
