The flag

The mill on the flag is "Moulin Fleming", a site protected by the Quebec government since 1983. The logo was adopted on September 14 1982. I made the GIF based on a photo taken by Ben Koorengevel. In 1999, I saw a different version in a Montreal Urban Community building: the mill is different and inside is a white disk on a red field; inside the disk, above the mill, is the inscription POINTE-CLAIRE and under the mill, LE VIEUX MOULIN, both in a semi-circle black lettering. Beaudoin reports yet another version.

Reference: François Beaudoin, Symboles de la Communauté urbaine de Montréal, Vexilla Belgica, 1982.

The flag of Pointe-Claire in current use is white with a modernized logo, designed in 2016. The stylized lines beneath the mill represent a moving and evolving society; they also recall Lake Saint-Louis and the highways crossing the municipal territory. The simplicity, the peaceful colours and the purity of the design highlight the exceptional quality of the environment in Pointe-Claire.
