Logo
The 1978 Commonwealth Games logo was derived from three elements:


The Canadian Maple leaf.
The arrows directing and converging to the central point symbolising    worldwide attention and movement to Edmonton.
A series of V's indicating the many thousands of volunteers who   made the Commonwealth Games possible.

Mascot

The 1978 Commonwealth Games mascot represented a replica of the Swan Hills Grizzly Bear native to Alberta and found only in the Swan Hills, a densely forested higher region of North Alberta.

It is one of North America's largest bears and at maturity can weigh more than 400kg. Its fur is a medium brown colour and is long and shaggy. The mascot was named "Keyano", a Cree Indian word which means unity and brotherhood and which appropriately describes the Friendly Games.
