The logo incorporates the municipal arms.
The chief is charged with a fleur-de-lis, a maple leaf and a shamrock vert
The field features, from top to bottom, three mounts vert, a blue field charged with three fesses wavy argent, a clay (brown) field charged with a plow gules, a cross gules, a wheat head or and a potato plant vert flowered argent.
The fleur-de-lis represents Quebec, the maple leaf represents Canada, and the shamrock recalls the Irish settlers who established the municipality.
The cross represents the Catholic faith. The wheat recalls that most inhabitants are farmers. The potato plant represents potato growers. The plow represents the rural origin of the municipality. The water with the waves represents rivers and waterfalls ("saults"). The fields represent the countryside, agriculture and horticulture.
A flag is described as rectangular, in proportions 2:1.
The lower right triangle, green, represents the Irish ancestors, the countryside and the farmers. Green is a symbol of hope, prosperity, youth and equality.
The upper left triangle is blue with three white waves. Blue is a symbol of the sky, faith, loyalty and Marian devotion. White is a symbol of peace, liberty and fraternity. The waves represent rivers and waterfalls.
