 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
The Acadian standard was officially adopted as the National Flag of Acadia in 1884 in Miscouche, Prince Edward Island. It predates the flag of Canada by 80 years and is the oldest existing flag of French people in North America, predating the Acadian flag of Louisiana by 81 years, and the provincial flag of Québec by 65 years. The flag is based on the French tri-color representing the origins of the Acadians. The yellow star is symbolic of the Acadian patron saint, the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of the Assumption.
The Acadians are the people who left Canada and settled in Louisiana in large numbers at the conclusion of the French and Indian War (about 1760) - hence the derevation of the Louisiana-French term "Cajun" (from the dialectical pronunciation of Acadaien).
