 Nova Scotia
Even without reading the Charter, the vacuity of the assertion that Nova Scotia's flag was authorized in 1621 should have been evident from the fact that the Charter predates the grant of arms, upon which the flag is based.
Nova Scotia has never actually authorized a provincial flag, preferring to pretend that a grant of arms creates a flag available to the public.
Further, in both Great Britain and Nova Scotia, the public usurpation of their flags is largely a product of the twentieth century, and in each case a tradition was then invented to give it the respectability afforded by a feigned patina of antiquity.
