The following description of the Nova Scotia Gaelic flag is from the Nova Scotia Provincial Office of Gaelic Affairs:  The image is that of a salmon in the shape of the letter 'G'. The salmon represents gift of knowledge in the Gaelic storytelling traditions of Nova Scotia, Scotland and Ireland and the Isle of Man. The 'G' represents the Gaelic language and the ripples are the manifestations of the language through its attendant culture: song, story, music, dance and custom and belief systems.

The Bradan Press book Fionn MacCool and the Salmon of Knowledge tells the story of the symbol depicted on the Gaelic flag and teaches Scottish Gaelic vocabulary words through an action story in English. For our Nova Scotia Flag Book Box, see here [link coming soon].
