Hope Restored Announced as Theme for Heritage Week 2015

FREDERICTON (GNB) – The theme for Heritage Week 2015 will be Hope Restored in recognition of the 50th anniversary of Canada’s national flag, as well as the 50th anniversary of New Brunswick’s provincial flag.

Hope Restored is the English translation of New Brunswick’s motto, Spem Reduxit.

New Brunswickers are encouraged to reflect upon the stories that have shaped the province and its collective heritage during Heritage Week 2015, Feb. 9 – 16.

The provincial flag was designed by Robert Pichette and Lt.-Cmdr. Alan J. Beddoe and adopted by proclamation on Feb. 24, 1965. The symbols depicted on the flag are taken from the Coat of Arms assigned by Royal Warrant of Queen Victoria on May 26, 1868.
