In 1916, after much controversy, Berlin, Ontario, Canada (my hometown) was re-named Kitchener as a result of anti-German sentiment during the First World War. A revision was necessary to the popular title of the city’s souvenir pamphlet 'Breezes About Berlin'. Rather than rework the name of the pamphlet (Kicking Around Kitchener?) city leadership decided to simply create stickers that could be placed over the old phrase.
The decision was emblematic of Kitchener's municipal decision-making over the next century, which tended to be ad-hoc, shortsighted, and to the detriment of any coherent cultural identity.
