The flag of the Francophone Games


The Jeux de la Francophonie (Francophone Games in English) are a combination of artistic and sporting events for French speaking nations, held every four years since 1989, partly as a counterweight to the Commonwealth Games. They are open to athletes and artists of the 56 member nations of the Francophonie. Canada is represented by three teams: Quebec, New Brunswick (the only officially bilingual Canadian province) and another team representing the rest of the country. The Belgian team is restricted to athletes from the French-speaking areas of the country. Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. ...

La Francophonie: Information from Answers.com (1043 words)
La Francophonie (formally l'Organisation internationale de la Francophonie; in English, "the International Organization of French-speaking Communities"[1]), a French-language term coined in 1880 by French geographer Onésime Reclus, brother of Elisée Reclus, to designate the community of people and countries using French, is an international organization of French-speaking countries and governments.
The Permanent Council of the Francophonie consists of Ambassadors of the member countries, and, like the ministers conferences, its main task is to plan future summits and also to supervise the implementation of summit decisions on a day-to-day basis.
In this regard, countries that are members of La Francophonie have contributed largely to the adoption by the UNESCO of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (October 20, 2005).
