On November 5, 1999, the Québec government adopted an Act respecting the flag and emblems of Québec. This law contains the main provisions governing the fleur-de-lis flag and Québec's other emblems.
The law states that Québec's floral emblem is the Blue Flag iris, Iris versicolor. Québec's emblematic tree is the yellow birch and its emblematic bird is the snowy owl. Just click on any of these emblems to learn more about them.
