The logo was selected in a public contest organized from 8 June to 31 July 1987. The contest yielded only three proposals, which were all rewarded with a prize. On 8 September 1987, the Municipal Council adopted the winning design, submitted by Claire Côté, as the municipal logo.

The irregular contour of the logo matches the territorial map of Saint-Bonaventure.
The local topography is featured, showing a flat land and a steep slope heading to river Saint-François. The valley's slope is some 30 m in height, except for a lower section 3 km in length.
Farms of all kinds established in Saint-Bonaventure are represented by furrows, the grain elevator, and the trees.
The skylight house highlights the residential character of Saint-Bonaventure.
The upper left part of the logo represents a window open to the future. The sun represents the character of Saint-Bonaventure's people.
