In addition to all of its safety features, the electronic Canadian passports have some cool designs hidden in plain sight that are only revealed under ultraviolet light.

The pages are covered with optically variable ink, turning ordinary pages printed with muted colors, maple leaf motifs and images from the country's history into vibrant images that brings the passports to life. Some people have even gone as far as to describe the passports as having "A party on every page," which is especially rare to hear about any kind of official document. Since the pages of a passport can be something to show off with pride, as a Canadian, this is a neat feature to show off whether you've collected a lot of travel stamps or not.
