Description of the flag

Although the municipality officially has a banner of arms, the current flag is white with logo on the hoist and the name of the
municipality in the fly. The same flag can be seen in front of the seat of the municipality (picture taken in 2014):

Banner of Arms

[Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel] image by Rob Raeside, 8 June 2017

The flag is a banner of arms.

The arms are blazoned "Per chevron Vert and Or the apex terminating in a Celtic cross, overall a pale, in chief two maple leaves and in base a fleur-de-lis, all counterchanged".

The three vertical bands represent the geographic location of Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel, a self-governing municipality located between the cities of Shawinigan and Trois-Rivières. Their subdivision into six parts of alternating colours, green and gold, illustrates the importance of agriculture in the municipality’s history. The division line forming a mountain visually represents Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel. The cross, symbolizing the municipality’s Catholic heritage, refers to the cross erected on the mountain. The fleur-de-lis and the maple leaves situate the municipality in Quebec and Canada, respectively.

Flag before 2009

The city website showed a white flag with undistinguishable details in the Spring of 2001.
