From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Free Newfoundland (FREE NFLD) is a slogan coined by Newfoundland and Labrador cartoonist Wallace Ryan in 1982. This slogan appeared on posters around St. John's during the 1980s to encourage and promote Newfoundland nationalism.

In the late 1990s, Mr. Ryan licensed the slogan to Living Planet to produce a line of t-shirts with the slogan and a bright red star above it. Living Planet has gone on to produce a line of products based on this slogan from mugs to underwear. It is one of the best selling t-shirts in the history of the company.
