The colours are just like the flag of France. Blue, white & red - because the Acadians were from France. The only difference is the yellow star in the upper left hand corner.

The blue means the sky and the sea. The harmony and loyalty.

The white means peace, hope.

The red means the blood, a reminder of the suffering and hardships in their history.

And the yellow star signifies the Virgin Mary or the North Star that the fishermen used to follow to get back home.
