The first Acadian flag was designed in 1883 by Father Marcel-François Richard and Miss Marie Babineau sewed the first flag (the yellow star on the red, white & blue flag), which is conserved at the Musée acadien de l’Université de Moncton, in Moncton, New Brunswick.

A few years ago, the Acadian Flag was officially recognized and proclaimed a National Flag, by the then Canadian Lieutenant-Governor Leger.
