Description

This crosswalk is painted with the logo of Squamish, the eye of the creator, in white across the road. The logo of Squamish represents our past and our future; our connection to the outdoors through the sky, wind, land and water; and it symbolizes our diversity. The name, Squamish, is an English adaptation of the First Nation word Skwxwu7mesh, meaning “Mother of the Wind” and “people of the sacred water”. The ‘Eye of the Creator’ icon that sits proudly above ‘Squamish’ represents the powerful connection that our people – from Squamish Nation residents dating back thousands of years, to residents of today – have with nature and the magnificent scenery that surrounds us. Ocean, mountains, granite, forest, wind, and rivers. These natural elements have defined us and our changing economy through the ages, and today offer a lifestyle packed with adventure that sets Squamish apart from all others.
