Prince Edward Island

My favorite province is Prince Edward Island!

What the symbols on Prince Edward's flag means

  • The P.E.I. flag is divided into two sections.
  • The gold lion is from Prince Edward's coat of arms.
  • It is the royal lion of England.
  • Below the lion are four oak trees on an island.
  • A large oak is on the right and three young saplings are on the left.
  • Bands of red and white form a border on three sides.
  • It became the province's official flag in 1964
  • What the symbols mean for the coat of arms

  • The shield of P.E.I. has the same symbols as the flag.
  • The large oak tree represents England.
  • Each smaller oak represents a county of P.E.I.

  • The coat of arms was officially proclaimed on December 13, 2002.
  • A blue jay on a grassy mound holds a leaf from the Red Oak in its beak.
