Vegreville’s famous weather-vane Easter Egg (the Pysanka) reflects the folk tradition of the area. By the 1950’s there were more than 30 different ethnic groups living in the Vegreville area. The four largest were the English, French, German and Ukrainian. With the advent of Ukrainians to Vegreville, came a colorful folk culture with its exuberant dance and other folk traditions such as egg-decorating.
This Pysanka (Ukrainian Easter Egg) symbolizes the harmony, vitality and culture of the community and is dedicated as a tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who brought peace and security to the largest multi-cultural settlement in all of Canada.
