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.
