From: (translation of caption):

Created by Raymond Lemoine, the flag ran first in a contest in May 1981. (Officially) hoisted in 1982. The Franco-Columbian flag bears the floral emblem of British Columbia, the dogwood. The blue stripes evoke the sea and, where they rise, the mountains. The stylized fleur-de-lys symbolizes the French speaking community and points to the sun represented by the yellow disk.
