History of Montreal

The Montreal flag features five different symbols. The French are represented by the fleur-de-lis, English by the Lancastrian Rose, Scottish by the thistle, Irish by the shamrock, and the Christian principles that the city was based upon are represented by a cross.

Jacques Cartier discovered the area in 1535; hence the reason that French is spoken in Montreal. The city is referred to as "Canada's Cultural Capital" and is Canada's center for French television produts, theater, radio and film. Montreal boasts a long-lasting tradition of jazz and rock music, plus experimentation in the visual arts and theater that is still very much alive today.
