St. Raphael Catholic School Celebrates the Anniversary of the Franco-Ontarian Flag


September 30, 2013 - St. Raphael Catholic Elementary School Core French teachers Lise McElree and Sabrina Rocca feel that it is important for students to learn the French language and culture. Students from the University of Sudbury created the Franco-Ontarian flag and it was unveiled for the first time on September 25, 1975. It has since become the emblem for the Ontario French-speaking community. It is important for students to understand the importance and symbolism of the flag and what it represents.

"On the emblem, green represents summer and white represents winter. Together the two colours represent the diversity of Ontario's climate. The lily evokes the French-speaking community worldwide, whereas the trillium is the floral emblem of Ontario."
Students were encouraged to celebrate by wearing green and white.
