The flag of the Canadian province of Quebec, the Fleurdelisé, consists of a white cross on a blue field, with a white fleur-de-lis in each quarter.

The Fleurdelisé takes its white cross from the ancient royal flags of France. Its white fleurs-de-lis (symbols of purity) and blue field (symbolizing Heaven) come from a banner honouring the Virgin Mary, reputedly carried by French-Canadian militia at General Louis-Joseph de Montcalm's victory at Carillon.
