Republic of Newfoundland

The Republic of Newfoundland merchandise that is so popular has at its origin the "pink,white and green flag" that is being referred to as the "native flag."

Republic of Newfoundland


The flag developed from the merging of flags flown by two rival groups in the 1800s: the so-called "natives," a group which was composed of well-established citizens of St. John's who were largely Roman Catholic; and a large group of newly arrived immigrants from Ireland.(ENL)

The following products have been inspired by this flag and the idea of Newfoundland as a Republic:

THE FLAG OF NEWFOUNDLAND
The pink, the rose of England shows,
The green St. Patrick's emblem, bright
While in between, the spotless sheen
of St. Andrew's Cross displays the white.
Then hail; the pink, the white, the green,
Our patriot flag' long may it stand.
Our sirelands twine, their emblems trine,
To form the flag of Newfoundland!
Fling out the flag, o'er creek and cragg,
Pink, white and green, so fair, so grand.
Long may it sway o'er bight and bay,
Around the shores of Newfoundland!
What'er betide, out ``Ocean Bride''
That nestles 'midst Atlantic's foam
Still far and wide, we'll raise with pride
Our native flag, o'er hearth and home.
Should e'er the hand of fate demand
Some future change in our career:
We ne'er will yield: on flood or field
The flag we honor and revere!
Fling out the flag, o'er creek and cragg,
Pink, white and green, so fair, so grand.
Long may it sway, o'er bight and bay,
Around the shores of Newfoundland!
