The flag is based on the British Columbia provincial flag, with a flag diagonally divided Red/Blue and bearing the "infinity" sign replacing the Union Jack. There is a Red River Cart and a silhouette of mountains in front of the sun.

The Red River Cart is a traditional vehicle of the Metis from the Red River area, now Manitoba.

The Confederacy of Nova Scotia Métis flag incorporates the infinity symbol with respect. It is designed after the wampum belts which were used to seal Treaties between First Nations and with European and Colonial governments. The figures represent the joining of cultures which now represent our Métis People.

According to their website, this group is a broader group than the group commonly known as the "Metis". They seem to include all people of mixed Native American with European or even African ancestry; this includes the Mestizos of Mexico, which (if I understand correctly) is the majority of Mexicans.
