On 27 May 1703, the French explorer Samuel de Champlain set up in Pointe-aux-Alouettes an alliance with representative of three Amerindian nations: Montagnais, Algonquin and Maliseet. The treaty allowed the French explorers to sail the Saint Lawrence River and to settle its banks; this was the first step to the establishment of the town of Quebec.

The municipal arms were designed after the villagers' appealing character and the village's geographical features.
The church, a sacred place, has a paramount role in the municipality and is connected to every house. This link represents bond and mutual aid between the villagers.
The municipality is located in a nice environment, composed of a picturesque and enchanting landscape, a vast forest, an outstanding beach, and not the least, superb watercourses, the majestic river Saint-Lawrence. The massive presence of marine mammals embellishes the landscape and makes happy every tourist visiting Baie-Sainte-Catherine.

The green and blue colors represent a good balance between the forest and the sea, while burgundy red, a warm color, personifies the wonderful, small village of Baie-Sainte-Catherine.
