Flanked by snow-capped peaks. Shaped by white-crested waves. The Whitecaps take their name from Vancouver's natural beauty. The Wave jersey is a reflection of Vancouver and the water that surrounds the city. Inscribed on the nape of the neck is the city's motto, "By Sea Land and Air We Prosper." The waves are also a nod to Vancouver's flag, which adorns the jersey's Jock Tag.
