Adopted in 1986, the flag symbolizes the pride and vitality of Francophones in Newfoundland and Labrador. It consists of panels of blue, white, and red, reflecting their French origins. In addition to symbolizing action and progress, the two sails commemorate the arrival of their French ancestors to the area. The yellow of the sails represents the color of the star of Acadie and was formerly associated with the French fleur-de-lis. The upper sail is charged with a twig from a black spruce, the provincial tree, and the lower sail bears a pitcher plant, Newfoundland and Labrador's provincial flower.
