Central to Canadian culture is the Hudson’s Bay Company’s (HBC) iconic point blanket with its unforgettable combination of red, green, yellow and indigo stripes.

Recently spotted in Vancouver enjoying the Olympic festivities were Canadian actor Hayden Christensen and actress girlfriend Rachel Bilson donning some very Canadian apparel--Hayden in an red HBC winter parka and Bilson wearing the latest version of the point blanket coat made by Canadian fashion label Smythe.

As the aftermath from the Vancouver 2010 Olympics continues, be prepared to see more and more people wearing the red, green, yellow and indigo stripes!
