Native Newfoundland

The "Pink, White and Green" flag originated in 1843 in St. John's, Newfoundland. It is the oldest flag in continuous use of any of the former jurisdictions of what was British North America, preceding in date of origin the Canada Flag (1967), those of all the other Canadian provinces, and preceded only in date of origin by the Union Flag of Britain (1801). The Newfoundland tricolor is the only flag in the world to include the colour pink.

The Pink, White and Green Newfoundland tricolour is composed of elements of three flags: the green Irish flag, the flag of the Newfoundland Native's Society, and a Scots Flag.

A summarized version of the history of the Pink, White and Green is included with the purchase of a flag.
