Flag of British Columbia (GIF)



British Columbia is the westernmost province in Canada. Its capital city is Victoria, and its largest city is Vancouver; its population is about 5,035,000, and its area is 944,735 km².

The flag of British Columbia is an interpretation of the Royal Union Flag, defaced in the center by a crown and with a setting sun below. The Unity Flag above reflects the British heritage of the province, while the crown at the center represents British Columbia's becoming a crown colony. The four wavy white and three wavy blue lines symbolize the province's position between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. Also, the sun represents the location of British Columbia at the western end of Canada. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on June 14, 1960.
