The flag of Quebec, called the Fleurdelisé, was adopted for the province by the government of Quebec, during the administration of Maurice Duplessis. It was first shown on January 21, 1948, at the Parliament Building in Quebec City. Quebec's Flag Day–January 21–commemorates its adoption each year, though for some time it was celebrated in May. At least one parade marked the flag's 60th anniversary in January 2008.----------------- The Act concerning the flag and emblems of Quebec states that "in all cases, the flag of Quebec has precedence over any other flag or emblem." Presumably, this would include the flag of Canada, which, under federal protocol, takes precedence when both are flown. Conflict is often avoided by flying the Quebec flag alone, especially on provincial buildings.
