Flag of the Creoles of Southwest Louisiana
About our flag:
Designed by Pete Bergeron in 1987 and adopted by C.R.E.O.L.E. INC., the flag of Louisiana Creoles represents the cultural melting pot that is the Louisiana Creoles.
The upper left section, a white fleur de lis on a blue field, represents Louisiana's French heritage. On the lower left and upper right sections, West African heritage is represented by the Mali Republic National flag and the Senagal Republic National flag (both green, yellow and red). Spanish Colonial heritage is depicted by the Tower of Castille (gold tower on red field) on the lower right section. A white cross dividing the four symbols represents the Christian faith accepted by the Muslim and Islamic from Senegal and Mali in Louisiana.
