Native Newfoundland Flag
(Republic of Newfoundland)
The "Pink, White and Green" flag originated in 1843 in St. John's, Newfoundland. It
is the oldest flag in continuous use of any of the former jurisdictions of what was
British North America, preceding in date of origin the Canada Flag (1967), those of
all the other Canadian provinces, and preceded only in date of origin by the Union
Flag of Britain (1801). The Newfoundland tricolor is the only flag in the world to
include the colour pink.
The Pink, White and Green Newfoundland tricolour is composed of elements of
three flags: the green Irish flag, the flag of the Newfoundland Native's Society, and
a Scots Flag.
A summarized version of the history of the Pink, White and Green is included with
the purchase of a flag.
