Description

The stylized fleur de lis that appears on Quebec's provincial flag has long been associated with France.

The fact that the Madonna Lily is not indigenous to Quebec sparked a move to adopt a new floral emblem that is truly part of the landscape. Over time, its common name fleur de la Lys was shortened to fleur de lis.

Iris versicolor L.
appropriately called the Blue Flag is a springtime flower with the distinctive shape and arresting blue tones that make it the perfect floral emblem for Quebec. It was officially adopted in 1999.
