You might have seen this small, subtle square pinned onto bags, shirts or caps: It all started in 2005 during the student strike that managed to save $103 million in bursaries for Quebec students.
It comes from the French saying “carrément dans le rouge,” which means “squarely in the red” or basically, that students were in debt because of tuition increase and cuts in bursaries.

It’s a very easy way to support Canadian students against the struggle against tuition increase. http://freeeducationmontreal.org/so-what-does-red-square-mean/
