“The symbolism of the blue background and the twelve stars are directly inspired from the medal godly dedicated to the Virgin Mary that mr. Heitz was wearing around his neck, a medal which came from the chapel of Our Lady of the miraculous medal. This flag is a symbol of the marian one, which has been voluntarily adopted on 8 December 1955, the day of the Immaculate Conception, ” he explained, causing protests on the benches of
