Official Newfoundland Flag
Two official flags have represented Newfoundland and Labrador since Confederation with Canada in 1949. First the Union Jack, followed by the current provincial flag in 1980.
The flag incorporates three colours set against a white background. Blue represents the sea, red human effort, gold self-confidence, and white the snow and ice. Four blue triangles echo the Union Jack and represent the province's Commonwealth heritage, while the larger red and gold sections represent its future. Two red triangles signify the island and mainland portions of the province, while a gold arrow points towards a bright future.
Newfoundland also has 2 unofficial flags
The Labrador Flag
and the Tricolour Republic Flag. Although the PWG flag was never an official flag, it can be seen all over the island is considered to represent independence.
Interesting that there are several flags.ReplyDelete
its fun to see them all flying togeatherDelete
That's funny....the picture I took in Victoria BC at Confederation Park shows a totally different design. It's a white cross on a red field, with a lion in the top left and bottom right, and unicorn in the top right and bottom left. Could that be a provincial crest and not the flag?ReplyDelete
that sounds like the crest or coat of armsDelete
I still think of the Union Jack as Canada's flag...our men fought under it in both world wars.ReplyDelete
that they did... then they didn't want usDelete
I have family from Newfoundland! I never knew this about the flags. Interesting post!ReplyDelete
what part of the island?Delete
it's funny to see how many unofficial flags there are in history. Some good, some bad, and some just ugly.ReplyDelete
I love the 1st unofficial flag-quite neat the other one has pink in it...not a pink gal but love it that each province has its own flagReplyDelete
the 1st unofficial is Labrador's flagDelete
