As figure skating pins go, by and large, the pin made to commemorate the 1986 Skate Canada International is striking. Not so much because it is beautiful or even well-produced. But because it is different. In a world where pins are routinely round or rectangular in shape with little creativity, a pin with an irregular shape and angles is a welcomed changed. The familiar Skate Canada logo is used to good advantage in a strobe effect, something not seen before on Skate Canada pins.
