The second most populous city in Canada. It is the capital of the Quebec Province: Montreal.
It is the most bilingual city in Canada with 71% speaking French and 51% speaking both French and English. It was originally ‘founded’ (stolen from First Nation People) in 1642 and dubbed ‘Ville-Marie’, ‘City of Mary’. Montreal comes from Mount Royal, a triple peaked hill in the center of the city.
The flag is based on the Coat of Arms of the city.
The flag was updated in 2017 which is why it caught my attention. Looking at each element of the design we find a progressive sensitive response to an important issue. Each icon represent the ethnic groups of the city.
