What are the national Acadian symbols?

A national holiday, a flag, a national anthem, a motto and an insignia constitute the national Acadian symbols.

The first Acadian nationalists were aware of the importance of giving their people cultural identity symbols.  This question was thus discussed at length during the first two National Acadian Conventions.  At the Memramcook Convention in 1881, the Acadians chose a national holiday, and at the Miscouche Convention in 1884, they completed their choice of symbols by adopting a flag, a national anthem, a motto and an insignia.
