Translated from city website:
Salaberry-de-Valleyfield has two official flags. One was unveiled in 1974, for the centennial. It is a tricolor with a simplified shield taken from the city arms, superimposed on the three stripes. Blue is for the sky, yellow for the fields and green recalls water. Since June 1983, however, only the flag with a setting sun on a stylized set of waves is used. The setting sun expresses the geographic location of the city, on the south shore of the St Lawrence, but also in the southwest of Quebec. The waves stand for the water of Saint-François bay and the aquatic environment that characterizes the municipality.The flag is also illustrated in NAVA News 32/1-2.
Salaberry possesses an international reputation in the world of nautical sports. The typography used for the city name is modern and dynamic, just like the spirit of its residents. The logo was realized by Bernard Morin and was adopted on July 11, 1985.
