Hm, I've heard that Canadians always wear maple leaf patches on their backpacks and such. I haven't been clear on why: is that so they won't be mistaken for Americans? Or just so they'll recognize one another?

Wait, are you recommending that I upgrade to Icelandic tchotchkes, or go biking in Iceland? I don't think the second is possible, since I've already reserved this trip. I suppose I could research what the Iceland flag looks like though! That'll confuse everyone for sure.

as a kid in Germany in the eighties, the Military advised us to tell people we were Canadian, if any strange people asked where we were from. no-one has a problem with Canadians. cuts down on bad things happening.

Yep, I'm not very worried. I found in Switzerland that a smile and friendliness got me far, and I never had a problem with anyone.
