Detailed Fransaskois Flag Product Description
The Fransaskois flag was adopted in 1976 by the Association of French-Canadians of Saskatchewan. This was the first francophone flag in Western Canada. It was chosen in the late 70s by way of contest.
The flag has a green cross entered towards the upper hoist, sitting on a field of yellow. A red fleur de lis is set in the lower fly.
The yellow represents the prairie province as well as symbolizes the wheat fields. The green cross represents the early missionaries and the Christian faith of the Fransaskois. Green also stands for the boreal forest areas in Saskatchewan's north. The red fleur de lis is the emblem of Frenchness. It was also used as the arms of a French explorer that went to this area. Red is for the heart, a symbol of the aspirations of the French community in Saskatchewan. Yellow, green and red are also the colours of the provincial flag of Saskatchewan.
