Drapeau fransaskois (des francophones en Saskatchewan) flottant au vent, Auteur : Daniel Paquet, DanielPaquet, photo.paquet.ca


The Fransaskois flag is a symbol of the Fransaskois community developed in 1979 by Lionel Bonneville, Richard Duret and Laurier Gareau following a competition from the Association jeunesse fransaskoise. In 2005, the flag became an official symbol of Saskatchewan and entered the Canadian Heraldic Register in 2018.

Article in Eau Vive from November 15, 1978

“The yellow symbolizes the wheat fields, and by extension the agricultural activities that characterized the first francophone colonization of Saskatchewan, while the green evokes the boreal forest. The cross recalls the role of the Catholic Church and of the missionary-colonizers in the efforts to settle the province. The fleur de lis represents the Francophonie and the French fact; its red color is a symbol of courage and the fight for the language, culture and rights of the Fransaskois."
