In 1903, a group of Jesuits and lay people in Quebec adopted Carillon-Sacré-Coeur as the national flag of French Canadians. Very quickly, other committees were set up throughout French Canada, from Quebec, Northern Ontario, to New Brunswick, to promote it. Nationalist circles were seeking to acquire a distinctive sign to replace the French tricolor (the flag of France) which was very popular among French-Canadians in the 19th century. The Carillon-Sacré-Coeur was a great success and is deployed in most major patriotic events throughout the first half of the 20th century, as elsewhere in Ontario.
In the center of the Carillon-Sacré-Coeur flag you can see the Sacred Heart wearing a crown of thorns, surmounted by a cross and surrounded by a garland of maple leaves. The blue background is in reference to Our Lady. The banner is crossed with a white cross and features to all over the lily, symbol of the French monarchy and also of Our Lady.
As you can see there is tremendous Catholic/Christian imagery within the flag. This Catholic identity was very strong and very much a part of French Canadians lives. – David Gilbert
