Pysanka Egg

The World’s Largest Easter Egg! Pysanka comes from the verb pysty – to write. Why an egg? The story began in 1973 when the Alberta government established the Alberta Century Celebrations Committee to coordinate the centennial celebrations of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to be held in 1974. The committee was to distribute funds to communities that wished to build a monument to the R.C.M.P.
