History

The current flag of Saskatchewan was adopted on September 22, 1969, the result of a province-wide competition that drew over four thousand entries. The winning entry was designed by Anthony Drake of Hodgeville, Saskatchewan. [0]

Meaning

The upper green half of the flag represents the northern Saskatchewan forest lands, while the gold lower half symbolizes the southern, prairie wheat-fields.

On the gold chief is a lion passant or leopard, a royal symbol of England. The three gold sheaves of wheat, or garbs, represent the province's agriculture. [0][1]
