Detailed Acadian Flag Product Description
The flag of Acadia was adopted on August 15, 1884, at the Second Acadian National Convention held in Miscouche, Prince Edward Island, by nearly 5,000 Acadian delegates from across the Maritimes. It was designed by Father Marcel-Francois Richard, a priest from Saint-Louis-de-Kent, New Brunswick.
The French flag was chosen as the basis of the Acadian one to underline the association of the Acadians to the French civilization. The star in the blue band is "emblematic of Acadian nationality" said Father Richard. The star represents the Blessed Virgin of the Assumption, Patron of the Acadians. The gold colour of the star is the colour of the Pope, to show the Acadians commitment to the Roman Catholic Church and the role of the Church to the history of Acadia.
