The flag

The Wolastoqey Nation is represented by Wolastoqey Tribal Council which consists of four Wolastoqey First Nations: Kingsclear, Madawaska Maliseet, Oromocto, and Saint Mary's.

The Wolastoqey Nation in New Brunswick launched a new flag designed by Samaqani Cocahq-Natalie Sappier for the First National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Sept.30, 2021
The Wolastoqewiyik Nation flag incorporates many elements that are culturally significant. The canoe and paddle represent the ancestral technology of transportation of the birchbark canoe and ash paddle. The river symbolizes not only who they are as People of the Beautiful River, Wolastoqewiyik, but also how the river highway keeps Wolastoqewiyik connected to all of their communities. The fiddlehead double curve designs in the corners are emblematic of the symbol for life, generations, past and present, and the traditional food source. The colours in those designs incorporate the four sacred colors of creation and the colours blue for water and tan for the land and islands. The salmon in the center has been another source of sustenance for Wolastoqewiyik and embodies their spirit of resilience and strength. The deep green of the flag represents the Earth. The flag is used by all of the Wolastoqewiyik Nation and is respected as a symbol of unity.
