The flag

The flag of Les Éboulements can be found on the municipal website:

Les Éboulements, one of the original seigneuries of New France, is now a municipality located in Charlevoix county (MRC), in the Capitale-nationale administrative region of Quebec.

Here is a translation of the flag's symbolism:
Green stands for the earthly origins of the population and blue for its links to the sea, while gold symbolizes its energy. In the center lies the floral emblem of the municipality, the orange hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum), chosen for its high presence on the territory and use on municipal welcome signs, as well as in the production of paper by the Papeterie St-Gilles, the local paper mill.
