September 25th commemorates Franco-Ontarian Day, which celebrates the richness and diversity of French-speaking culture and their contribution to cultural, economic and historical development in our beautiful province!
The Franco-Ontarian flag consists of two vertical bands:
- The first band is green with a white lily. This flower represents the French-speaking community worldwide
- The second band is white with a green trillium, the provincial flower of Ontario
Green was chosen to evoke summer, while the use of white brings to mind winter. Together the two colours represent the two poles of Ontario’s climate!
