Facts and History of Saint-Pierre & Miquelon Flag

Constitutional incertitude: Facts and History of Saint-Pierre & Miquelon Flag

Being neither banned nor proclaimed by the local constitution, the local flag of Saint-Pierre & Miquelon that seems to be widely accepted by the population pictures a yellow ship on a water-blue background and the three origins of the inhabitants on the left side arranged from top to bottom: the citizens are in majority Basques, Breton and Normans.

Facts and History of Saint-Pierre & Miquelon Flag point out the origin of the yellow ship being believed that it has been the vessel of Saint-Pierre Jacques Cartier on which he came on the island.

2005, there has been a local complaint regarding the flag: a woman was unsatisfied with the fact that the citizens of the archipelago of Acadian origin are not symbolized on the flag.

A probable solution to this might be the addition of a yellow star to the current design.
