Background Information

The Y4Y Quebec Symbolism Project aims at promoting the visibility and vitality of Quebec's English-speakers through the creation of an official flag for the English-speaking community of Quebec (ESCQ).

Inspired by the flags of French-speaking communities in the rest of Canada, this project's primary goal is to create the first official flag that will serve to unite and represent the English-speaking community of Quebec. This highly creative project will focus on mobilizing and engaging with the English-speaking youth of Quebec to identify the meaningful symbols and emblems that represent this multifaceted community and their place in Quebec.
​The flag will be a unifying symbol for the English-speaking community of Quebec and will increase the sense of belonging to their linguistic minority community and to the broader Quebec society. In the future, the flag can be used by all community organizations to identify gatherings, events, activities and projects that focus on the English-speaking community.

The layout of this design is inspired by the Franco-Ténois flag, which highlights the landscape of the region. The white pine tree symbolizes the Indigenous communities of Québec and the half-wreath is made of the national flowers that represent the various countries of origin of the Québec's English-speaking communities, with a fleur-de-lys in the center, grounding the flag within Québec, and forming an « E » for English-speaking.

A fleur-de-lys starting in the bottom left of the flag represents the Province of Québec as the geographic context of the English-speaking communities. The top centre of the fleur-de-lys takes the shape of the maple leaf, grounding the communities in the broader Canadian context. The bottom right petal that curves outward forms an « E »,for « English », which underlines the flag's representation of the English-speaking populations. The array of colours in the background represent the cultural diversity of the English-speaking communities, and includes colours from the flags of the many countries of origin, as well as the many First Nations, who are part of the English-speaking context in Québec.

This flag design takes its inspiration from the Indigenous communities in Québec. The stylized clouds honour the seasons and the vastness, and the mountains reference the province’s ancient mountain range and extensive natural environment of Québec. At the centre of the flag is the crest of antlers, which also represent the vast natural beauty of Québec. The antlers are filled by several different colours that represent the flags of the diverse countries of origin of the English-speaking communities. This element is inspired by the flag of La Francophonie internationale.
