While both the tricolor and the rose appear on other proposals for Alberta, I had the idea for the blue-green-yellow tricolor (based on the ) independently. The stylized rose, the idea of which I did take from preexisting proposals, references the , the provincial flower, as well as the rose in the coat of arms of Alberta's namesake, British princess . Two more versions use the provincial colors (blue and yellow), of which the last uses four horizontal stripes in reference to the Franco-Albertan flag.
The first shown proposal for British Columbia uses the British blue ensign format to avoid stretching the Union Jack (a common point of criticism on the current flag), and simplifies the waves and sun. The second removes the Union Jack altogether, and has the crown symbolize British links (which it possibly already does).
After some designs based on the Manitoba. Most elements of the current flag are retained: the red background (with the , out of which Manitoba was formed, as additional symbolism), the bison and, in the second flag, the St. George's Cross and the reference to Britain in the canton (which could be replaced by a maple leaf if better)., I made the significantly less radical displayed flags for
These flags for New Brunswick remove the lion from the chief part (similarly to Jack Expo's flag) as well as simplifying the waves into a straight blue stripe, resulting in a red-gold-blue tricolor with the (more stylized) ship as charge. The ship is differently colored in the two versions of the flag; both flags have a total of four colors, one fewer than the current flag.
Philip Tibbetts' proposal is a horizontal bicolor of gold and blue, which is the traditional bicolor of the province's namesake reversed. This modification uses a 2:1 stripe ratio, for visual balance and to allow for a larger ship, as well as to further reduce the similarity with .
Newfoundland and Labrador
Based on Leonardo Piccioni's proposal, these proposals for Newfoundland and Labrador combine the unofficial regional flags of the two halves: the Newfoundland Tricolour (green–white–pink) and the flag of Labrador (white–green–sky blue).
My flags for the Northwest Territories are based on the coat of arms, the shield of which is diagonally divided in green and red. The green symbolizes the forests in the south; the red symbolizes the in the north. The blue and white diagonal stripes allude to the chief of the shield (a blue wavy stripe on white, representing the passing through the Arctic Ocean) as well as to the background stripes of the current flag (which represent waters and ice). The four-pointed star refers to the compass in the crest of the , which represents the .
The current Nova Scotian flag unites two Scottish symbols: the (with the colors switched) and the . For these proposals I replaced the shield with the provincial flower, the , in order to include actual province-specific symbols (as opposed to only Scottish ones). In the first, the mayflower is combined with a stylized , which like the saltire represents links with Scotland. Both flowers can be seen in the compartment in the .
While Nunavut already has one of the best Canadian subnational flags in my opinion (I doubt if I dare say it's better than Quebec's!), I wanted to see how the flag would look with a more stylized version of the , using rectangles only, and with the inuksuk's unnecessary black outline removed. Since the white doesn't seem to explicitly represent anything in the official specification, I also made some versions with a blue and gold background, saving one more color.
Modelled after my flags for the other province currently using a British Red Ensign, Manitoba, two of these flags for Ontario use the St. George's Cross from the shield in place of the Union Jack. The is the provincial flower and a popular symbol of Ontario; this stylization appears on the and the former government logo.
Prince Edward Island
The Prince Edward Island was named, was the then royal arms of the UK, differenced by a label with a cross in the central point and fleurs-de-lis in the outer points. My proposals are based on it, and use the red, green and white that are the main colors of the current flag. Like Philip Tibbetts, I referenced the three oaks from the current flag, which represent the province's three counties, by acorns. (No real reason for the Nordic cross in the first version other than to give the acorns some space, and to distinguish the flag from England's.), after whom the province of
These versions are closer to the current flag, keeping the red-white fringe (but changed into a border around all four sides) and/or stripes.
Saskatchewan's current flag is a horizontal bicolor of green and yellow, representing its northern forests and southern prairies. It is charged with the provincial flower (the ) in the fly and in the canton.
I based my first two proposals on the green-on-yellow cross from the flag of French Canadians in Saskatchewan and a simplified/symmetrical version of the flower (based on a photograph of it). The third proposal is the bicolor from the current flag with the flower in yellow and red.
Just a simplification of the current flag of Yukon. I replaced the coat of arms with some of its main elements: two red triangles, representing mountains, with two white (originally gold) circles within each. I chose to omit the wavy stripes, which symbolize rivers, since these are already represented by the blue stripe.
The second version instead keeps the Jack Expo's and 5thEye's proposals. The third is a variation on one of my first attempts from 2014, which uses a horizontal layout instead of a vertical one.that appears in the crest of the arms, like
