Every province and territory at the Canada Summer Games has official team colors. Alberta’s color’s are blue, white and grey. The blue portrays the vast prairie skies while the grey symbolizes winter. The lightning bolt in the logo reminds us of Alberta’s thunderstorms, but mostly it represents the power and electricity that Team Alberta athletes will possess! The bolt is located on the southwest corner of the logo to indicate the location of the rugged Rocky Mountains in the province.
