Canterbury's centennial celebrations in the summer of 1950–51 featured two celebratory processions. The first was '100 years of progress', which was a historical pageant. The second was a floral procession reflecting Canterbury's pride in the fertility of its soil and Christchurch's identity as the garden city. This was the float of Hay's department store, which expressed the province's continued loyalty to the British monarch.
