The arms on this flag were created by Treflé Boileau, who died in 1968. The arms are said to evoke the arrival by boat of the first settlers, as well as agricultural and river activities that have predominated for over two centuries. I took a photo of this flag in 1999 in a Montreal Urban Community building. The flag is also reported in Beaudoin.
