As Canadian music fans, we're proud of our national identity. You can hear it in the music, and, sometimes, you can actually see it on the album covers. There are some covers that look so Canadian that even if you didn't know the artist and couldn't read the text, you'd know where it's from. Maybe it's snow or wilderness or wildlife or the goofy smiles on the artists, but there's something unmistakably Canadian about the album art.

We've collected the best examples. Click on the gallery above for the 20 most Canadian album covers ever.
