Royal Banner of France c.1365

‘In 1534, the French landed on Canadian soil with the Royal Banner of France which showed the Fleur-de-lis. It was the symbol of French sovereignty, and became the flag of Canada for certain parts of the country until 1763, when France seceded to Great Britain. This flag displayed three gold fleur-de-lis on a dark blue field.’
