Detailed Franco-Terreneuviens Flag Product Description

The Franco-Terreneuviens flag was adopted on October 1986 and was created by Lily Fortin.

The flag is based on the French tricolour and Acadian flag, with three unequal panels of blue, white and red. Two yellow sails are set on the line between the white and red panels. The top sail is charged with a spruce twig, while the bottom sail is charged with a pitcher flower. Both emblems are outlined in black. 

The sail represent early Basque, Breton and French fishermen who came to the area as well as the explorer Jaques Cartier. At the same time, they are symbols of action and progress. the Yellow on the sails is taken from the star of the Acadian flag. 

The spruce twig is the emblem of the Labrador Flag. The insect eating pitcher plant is the provincial floral emblem of Newfoundland and Labrador. 

The flag was adopted by the Fédération des Francophones de Terre-Neuve et du Labrador to represent the Franco-Terreneuviens.
