I choose the Louisiana Creole Flag because it represents the the heritage and culture of the people. Kate Chopin was Creole and wrote about the upper crust Creole society in “The Awakening”. When reading the culture and context section it is important to read about the Creole to understand the characters in Chopin’s novella. The New Orleans Creole are a mixture of African, French and Spanish to name a few races but they have expanded to include a variety of nationalities and have a rich history that encompasses the New Orleans Culture. Like the flag the French and Spanish joined to together to create a group of people in southern part of America known as “Criollo”. Creoles vary skin tone but they never forget their roots. Their history is infused with colorful sayings,food, sayings and music just like the flag. The flag represent s the many different faces of the Creole people some being of African descent while others of Spanish. The term Creole involved so that these group of people could distinguish themselves and not be look down upon by those that lived in Spain before coming to the Americas.The Creole people of New Orleans speak a French dialect that is deeply embedding not only in the their Culture but Louisiana as a whole. The flag represents races of people coming together to form a new culture and a past and present view of the make up of the Creole people.
