Francophones in Saskatchewan are known as Fransaskois. The Fransaskois population is established in many cities and towns located throughout the central and southern parts of the province. More than 50% of Fransaskois live in the province’s three largest cities: Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert. A total of 17,735 members of the Fransaskois community report French as their first official language spoken, and more than 51,800 people in Saskatchewan can carry on a conversation in French.
The Fransaskois flag was created and adopted by the Fransaskois community in 1979. It was later recognized as an official symbol of Saskatchewan in 2005.
