The logo was adopted in 1984. Translated from city documentation:
The graphical symbol represents the geographical factor that is at the origin of the name of Trois-Rivières. The three branches of the Saint-Maurice river delta indeed give the impression to be "three rivers" (in French: trois rivières) feeding the Saint-Lawrence see way. The horizontal line at the base of the symbol represents by its wavy shape the Saint Lawrence river. The two shapes surrounded by blue constitute a representation of the two main islands that can be seen from the Saint Lawrence. Blue symbolizes water, while green stands for nearby vegetation, rich in forests. Inspired by the name of the city, this graphical symbol allows us to understand and visualize daily our history, and in this sense, is ageless. The overall design is contained in a square, which facilitates its reproduction and adaptation.
The two islands are Saint-Quentin (on the left), and l'île de la Potherie
(on the right). The designer of the logo was Pierre Rivard, graphic artist.
