About Treaty Four

Treaty 4 was a treaty established between Queen Victoria and the Cree and Saulteaux First Nations. The area covered by Treaty 4 represents most of current day southern Saskatchewan, plus small portions of what are today western Manitoba and southeastern Alberta.[1] This treaty is also called the "Qu'appelle Treaty," as its first signings were conducted at Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan on 15 September 1874. Additional signings or adhesions would continue until September 1877.

"CBC News" reported on 14 October 2011:

A flag representing First Nations is flying above city hall in Regina, something officials say is a first in Canadian history. The flag, associated with Indian bands that signed Treaty Four, joined an array of flags at city hall, including flags of Canada, Saskatchewan and the city.
The Treaty Four flag, which represents 34 First Nations in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, was chosen by city council members as the most suitable symbol to reflect Regina's aboriginal population.
In a news release Friday, the City of Regina said the design of the Treaty Four flag came from a late elder, Gordon Oakes, who envisioned the flag being flown with other official government flags. City council has also approved adding a Métis flag to the array of official flags in front of city hall. - including video captures of the flag raising ceremony, with very clear images of the flag. A black and white photo of the flag is shown in the "Leader-Post", 15 October 2011, reporting the same event.

An image of the flag is shown on the "One Stop New Stan" website, with color shades somewhat different from those of the flag actually raised in Regina.
