First lit on January 1, 1967 the Centennial Flame is situated at the entrance to the Parliament Buildings of Ottawa inside the Queens' Gate. The flame is fed by a natural gas jet that sits under a metal dome depicting the Centennial year logo. The flame, however is not an eternal one as it is routinely extinguished during bad weather or for cleaning and relit. The fountains' water runs from beneath the coat of arms for each of the provinces and territories of Canada as they existed in 1966, into a moat surrounded by a wall that lists the year each province and territory joined the Canadian Confederation of Canada.
