ABOUT THE PROJECT
Promoting the Visibility and Vitality of Quebec's English-speakers through the Creation of an Official Flag for the English-Speaking Community of Quebec (ESCQ)
Inspired by the flags of French-speaking communities in the rest of Canada, this project's primary goal is to create the first official flag that will serve to unite and represent the English-speaking community of Quebec. This highly creative project will focus on mobilizing and engaging with the English-speaking youth of Quebec to identify the meaningful symbols and emblems that represent this multifaceted community and their place in Quebec.
The flag will be a unifying symbol for the English-speaking community of Quebec and will increase the sense of belonging to their linguistic minority community and to the broader Quebec society. In the future, the flag can be used by all community organizations to identify gatherings, events, activities and projects that focus on the English-speaking community.
