The flag of Nova Scotia, created in 1858, is a banner of the coat of arms of Nova Scotia, which were granted to the Scottish colony by Charles I in 1625.

The flag of the modern Canadian province, a blue saltire on a white field (background), is a simple figure-ground reversal of the flag of Scotland (a white saltire on a blue field), charged with an inescutcheon bearing the royal arms of Scotland, which is a gold shield with a red lion rampant surrounded by a loyal double tressure (a double border decorated with fleurs de lis).
