Story of the flag
About The FlagOur Story Austfjord ( Aced - Fjord) - East of the Fjords
This flag is a tribute to all Icelandic-Canadians but, was inspired through the deep respect my husband Brian Austfjord has for his Icelandic Roots.
Brian's Grandparents, Gudmundur & Gudfinna Austfjord (“ Aced “ - Fjord) Icelandic translation- East of the Fjords, a region in Iceland where his Afi , Gudmundur Jonson last stood before coming to Canada in 1903 to seek a better life in New Iceland.
Many letters were sent back and forth to Iceland telling stories of new age Sagas of the struggles that our forefathers faced pioneering this new land called Canada.
