The flag of Quebec, called the Fleurdelisé (the Lily-flowered) represents the province of Quebec. It was adopted by the government of Quebec during the administration of Maurice Duplessis. It was the first provincial flag officially adopted in Canada, first shown on January 21, 1948, at the Parliament Building of the National Assembly in Quebec City. Quebec's Flag Day (January 21) commemorates its adoption each year, though for some time it was celebrated in May.[1] At least one parade marked the flag's 60th anniversary in January 2008.[2]

Status

Article 2 of An Act respecting the flag and emblems of Québec confers the status of national emblem (French: emblème national) to the flag of Québec.[3][4]
