Flag of Saskatchewan
|Design||A green-yellow vertical bicolour charged with the coat of arms in the canton and the floral emblem in the fly. |
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. 
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.
