Show off your pride for the provine of Newfloundland and Labrador! Like many other flags from the provinces of Canada, the flag of Newfoundland pays tribute to the original Red Ensign and Union Jack flags. The current flag was designed and adoptd in 1980 by Christopher Pratt who wanted to stay connected with their British heritage. The blue parts of the flag mimic the blue triangles seen on a Union Jack flag. The two red triangles are representative of the two areas of the province, Newfoundland and Labrador. Lastly, Pratt added on the golden arrow to point towards a "birghter future". On top of these meanings for the design, the colours are also highly symbolic. Blue represents the sea of course, white is the snow. The red represents the hardships of the Newfoundlanders and the gold signifies the confidence and hope for the future of Newfoundland.
