Prince Edward Island Flag GIF (Drapeau Île-du-Prince-Édouard)

The flag of Prince Edward Island (French: Drapeau de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard) consists of a white background and is surrounded by alternating red and white stripes, except on the left side. The top third of the flag contains the British heraldic lion, which appears on the coats of arms of both Prince Edward and King Edward VII. The lower two-thirds show an island on which appear three small oak saplings—which represent the three counties of Prince Edward Island (Prince, Queens, and Kings)—under the protection of a great oak tree, which symbolizes Great Britain. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on March 24, 1964.
