The Quebec flag was adopted in January of 1948. It is sometimes known as the Fleurdelisé. A white cross divided the banner into four blue fields, which each contain a white fleurs-de-lis. The white cross is from France’s old royal flags. The blue fields are thought to be from a blue banner that was carried by a French-Canadian army into battle. It honored the Virgin Mary. The fleur-de-lis also are symbolic of the Virgin Mary and purity.
