The flag of the City of Drummondville has a white field with the city’s arms in the centre, roughly three-fourths the height of the flag, with DRUMMONDVILLE below the arms, in serif letters in yellow outlined black. The arms have a central shield with a horizontal top, straight sides curving at the base to a narrow tip, and four quarters. The first and fourth are silver with a blue horizontal stripe on which are three white five-pointed flowers lined in black, all in a row. The second and third are white with two horizontal red stripes; the spaces around and between them are filled with “ermine” spots and tails in black. A five-towered mural crown in yellow with black details is above the shield, which is surrounded on both sides by a wreath of green maple leaves. On a horizontal swallow-tailed ribbon of yellow at the base appears FORTEM POSCE ANIMUM in sans-serif letters in black.

The city’s documentation interprets the arms:
The arms used for half a century are a combination of the arms of Frederick George Heriot, founder of the city [in 1815], and those of the Nugent family, the founder’s mother. The shield is under a gold mural crown, a symbol of civic authority. The [Latin] motto Fortem posce animum means “Asks for a strong soul”. Gold symbolizes strength and riches, silver represents purity. Blue is for justice, loyalty, and beauty; red is for charity, justice, and heroism; green is for youth, hope, optimism, confidence in the future, and an enterprising spirit. The maple leaves are green, their traditional colour in Québec heraldry.
