Acadian Flag

The Acadians were descendants of French farmers who settled in the areas of present-day Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island in the 1630s. Primarily French speaking and Roman Catholic, their relations with English conquerors were troubled. They were deported between 1755 and 1763.
