Historical Description:

"Not to be confused with flag of Acadia. Official flag of Acadiana The flag of the ethnic Acadian (Cajun) region (in Louisiana, United States) was designed in 1965 by Thomas J. Arceneaux. Arceneaux was the dean of the College of Agriculture at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He derived the flag from the University seal. Arceneaux was an early leader of the Louisiana French Renaissance Movement, a movement intended to renew interest and pride in the French-Acadian heritage, language, and culture of Louisiana. On July 5, 1974, the Louisiana State Legislature officially adopted Arceneaux's design as the official Acadiana flag through House Concurrent Resolution 143."
