Only half the flag is shown (the other half is folded back). I would note that the town website at http://ville.saint-eustache.qc.ca/fr/accueil has a link to a page about the municipal symbols (http://www.ville.saint-eustache.qc.ca/fr/PDF/Cahier%20normes%20St-Eus05.pdf), wherein the flag is described as the having the arms on a white field (p. 13)
The arms are described as:
The first part evokes the church, the religious and political history of Saint-Eustache.
The second part symbolizes the levels, the soil fertility and the vigour and richness of the region represented by the oak which gave its name to the river that irrigates the land.
The third part symbolizes the waters of the Thousand Islands River, which flows from the Lake of Two Mountains.
Finally, the motto is taken from the poet Virgil's Georgics: "God gives us this place of peaceful life.

I reconstructed this flag from a photo in Jim Croft's collection. The color looked black, but it may have been dark blue.
I have also seen a variant with the city name towards the fly. There is
also another flag with the arms on a white canton. The rest of the field is
burgundy on the upper half, while the lower half is divided in two stripes of
green and blue.
