Cradled between hills and rivers

Municipal logo and coat of arms



On this drawing, you have undoubtedly recognized our mountains and the Ottawa River.

The maple leaf is the Canadian emblem, the fleur-de-lys and the clover are the emblems representing the French and the Irish, whose descendants consist of almost our entire population.

The sheaf of grain represents agriculture, the fir tree symbolizes the forest that once was the wealth of our municipality.

Finally, the Indian whose name represents our municipality (Pontiac) was a great chief and is part of our history.

(The text and drawing were presented by Maryse Lavigne at the age of 12, having been chosen as the winner of the contest given by the municipality in 1982, and hence became the official coat of arms of the Municipality of Pontiac).
