Flags of the Sovereign and Vice-Regals

Military flags

Historical flags of Canada

Flags of the French communities

    Maw Stanton wrote on 1995-10-30 in the article on Acadians that they are the other French community in Canada. Actually they are the other historical franche community in Canada. There are communities in each province and territory and each has a flag.

  • Franco-Ontariens or Ontarois (The bigest community outside Quebec, 500 000)
  • Franco-Manitobains (Manitoba)
  • Fransaskois (Saskatchewan)
  • Franco-Albertains (Alberta)
  • Franco-Colombiens (British Columbia)
  • Franco-Yukonnais (Yukon)
  • Franco-Ténois (North West Territories)
  • Franco-Terreneuviens (Newfoundland and Labrador)
  • Acadiens (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island)
  • Royaume du Saguenay (Kingdom of Saguenay) which is an distinctive historic and very nationalist region of the Quebec province
  • Finally there is a Franco-American flag used by the French of New England: A big silver star on a blue shield.

    Most of these flags show a pattern with a Fleur de lys and the official provincial flower.

    These flags are sometimes seen on TV, but are extremly hard to find, even in Montreal. I found most of them and am looking for a good scanner to put them on the web.
