What the colours represent:
White represents snow.
Green symbolizes the land.
Blue represents the waters of Labrador's rivers, lakes and the sea.
What the spruce twig represents:
The spruce twig in the upper left-hand corner was chosen because this tree is common in all regions of Labrador.
The three branches of the twig symbolize the three peoples of Labrador: the Inuit, the Innu, and the European settlers.
The twig grows from one stalk, representing the common origin of all humanity.
The shorter inner twig represents the past, while the larger outer twig represents a brighter future.
