From Halifax, it's about a 2 1/2 hour drive to the town of Digby. The Neck and Islands are a bit 'off the beaten path', but well worth the visit. A peaceful, secret paradise that attracts visitors to get close to the whales...and much more.

The flag of nova scotia


 The flag of Nova Scotia was the first flag flown in the overseas Commonwealth to be authorized by a Royal Charter. It is in essence a representation of St. Andrew's Cross in reversed colors, with the Scottish Royal Arms centered. In fact, the name Nova Scotia means New Scotland.
