NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR

coat of arms
 
 New-Found-Land - yes it was, several times! The first "Europeans" to find it were the Vikings in 986 and again when Lief Ericson named it Vinland for all the grapes he found growing there. The Portuguese even bumped into it in their quest to find a Northwest Passage to the Far East in 1472. But not until John Cabot in 1497, did it truly become known as Newfoundland.
