The Montreal youth organization Y4Y is hoping to create an official flag to represent the English-speaking communities of Quebec.

The Quebec organization says the project is intended to promote a sense of belonging among Quebec's anglophone residents and represent the many facets of the diverse English-speaking communities across the province.

“We noticed that French-speaking linguistic minorities in other provinces had their own community flags,” said Alexandre Pettem, project manager at Y4Y Quebec. “We thought it could be an interesting project of inclusion.”

The Y4Y website currently offers three flag proposals designed by four young English-speaking students from Quebec: Albano Anis, Dana Isaac, Muriel Smith and Coco Wang.

People are encouraged to visit the website and vote on the flag they prefer.

Here is the info about each flag:

FLAG 1

The layout of this design is inspired by the Franco-Ténois flag, which highlights the landscape of the region. The white pine tree symbolizes the indigenous communities of Quebec and the half-wreath is made of the national flowers that make up Quebec's English-speaking community, with a fleur-de-lys in the center to form it into an E.

FLAG 2

A fleur-de-lis represents Quebec as the geographic context of the English-speaking community. The maple leaf edge represents the Canadian context of the community. An "E" is outlined in the flower as the first letter of "English". The arrays of colors in the background represent the cultural diversity of the English-speaking community.

FLAG 3

This flag design honours the indigenous communities in Québec, with a stylized design of clouds, references to the province’s ancient mountain range, and with an antler crest at its centre.
