Municipalités régionales de comté flag information
(MRC/counties)

    La Matapédia:
    Jean-Guy Leblanc, from Maria Quebec, reported a white flag with the county logo in the Summer of 1997. The website shows a logo on a flag shape outline, though details are lacking at this point to reconstruct it more precisely.

Municipal flag information

Incomplete Information

  • Ville d'Amqui (La Matapédia):
    I have a photo, taken in the Fall of 1998, of a white flag with the full arms centered and the name of the city in black letters underneath. The flag belongs to James Croft.
  • Ville de Dégelis (Témiscouata):
    I have a photo of the city council members posing in from of a vertical white almost square banner with the city arms. Unfortunately, I don't have a good image of the arms.
  • Village de Price (La Mitis):
    A photo on the village's website in the Spring of 2005 shows a white flag in front of city hall.
  • Ville de Rimouski (Rimouski-Neigette):
    According to the minutes of the city council, there existed a city flag in the Spring of 2004, since one was given to the mayor of the French city of Bayeux.
  • Municipalité de paroisse de Saint-Eugène-de-Ladrière (Rimouski-Neigette):
    The website shows the arms on a white-background flag. However, the image is partial, and we can't tell the proportions of the flag or whether there is anything else on the flag, such as the municipality's name.
  • Municipalité de paroisse de Sainte-Flavie (La Mitis):
    A photo on the municipal website in the Spring of 2005 shows a white flag in front of city hall.
