Description of the flag

On February 21, 2018, the RCM Matanie adopted a V-/W/V- flag (resolution 105-02-18): According to the resolution,
the flag is rectangular in shape and composed of vertical sections; wider, the central part is white and bears the emblem of the MRC (badge of the official logo) as well as the words “La Matanie”; the narrow bands at the hoist and the fly are green to remind the importance of agriculture and forestry in the development of La Matanie; in the upper hoist, a white fleur-de-lys recalls the French origins and the fact that the Matanie population belongs to Québec.

The logo of the MRC evokes one of its basic missions, the planning of territorial management and development. Featuring the local, diversified, landscapes, the logo highlights:
- the dynamism and solidarity of the region and its population, represented by interspersed shapes.
- rivers and lakes, which are evoked by the curved, moving lines and by the blue color.
- the generosity of the natural environment and the significance of the forest ecosystem, which are recalled by the green shades and the tree.
- the effervescent context and commitment to sustainable development, which are illustrated by the abundant foliage.
- the Chic-Chocs mountain range, which is illustrated by the white counter-shape and evokes adventure.
- the cultivated plain, which is represented by the two sections in soft green color at the bottom of the mountains.
