The Flag

Flag is a logo on white.
Dave Fowler, 20 February 2022

The logo was adopted in autumn 2012, replacing a more figurative one.
The two blue lines represent the two watercourses located on each side of the municipality: the Three Lakes and Nicolet River. They also represent the 10th and 11th rangs that cross the municipal territory. The stripes are angled and slightly diverging, being open to the future, to change and to developments.
The two curved lines represent the municipality's mountainous geography. The green line evokes agriculture while the blue one evokes the Three Lakes.
The small buildings symbolize the church, of particular architecture, and the village.
