Abstract: We describe which Anosov flows on compact manifolds have $ {C^\infty }$ stable and unstable distributions and a contact canonical $ 1$-form: up to finite coverings and up to a $ {C^\infty }$ change of parameters, each of them is isomorphic to the geodesic flow on (the unit tangent bundle of) a compact locally symmetric space of strictly negative curvature.
