Flag of Saint Pierre and Miquelon (GIF)

Saint Pierre and Miquelon is an island and a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France in the northwest Atlantic Ocean. Its capital is Saint-Pierre, and its population is approximately 6,000.

The flag of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a flag designed on the basis of the Collectivity's coat of arms. The right side of the flag is blue with a yellow ship named Grande Hermine, which brought Jacques Cartier to Saint Pierre on June 15, 1536. The three square fields placed along the left side represent the origin of most of the inhabitants of the islands; from top to bottom, Basques, Bretons, and Normans. The height-to-width ratio of the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted in 1982. In addition, the national flag of France is officially used instead of this flag.
