1986

The Franco-Newfoundland and Labrador flag is adopted

The three unequal panels of red, white and blue represent the community’s French origins.

The two yellow sails are the colour of Acadia and signify the arrival of their common ancestors. The upper sail is decorated with a tamarack branch, the emblem of Labrador, and the large sail has a pitcher plant, the official floral emblem of Newfoundland and Labrador. The flag was raised for the first time in 1987.
