The Acadian Flag

Designed in 1883

In 1883, the first Acadian flag was designed. The star is symbolic of Mary, Star of the Sea, who guided the outcasts through storms and sufferings. The blue represents persons consecrated to her; while the Papal colors, gold and white, show their loyalty to the Church. The red denotes the courage and bloodshed of their forefathers. Marie Babineau Belliveau (Mrs.Alphee Belliveau) made the first flag, which is conserved at Musée Acadien (à L'Édifice Clément-Cormier) 
de l'Université de Moncton à Moncton, N.B.
