Arms of Châteauguay

Coat of arms:

The arms of Châteauguay UNITA FORTIOR "Stronger Because United", this is the motto that is featured on the coat of arms of the City of Châteauguay

Recalling the fusion of the three municipalities, it only appears on the stationary and some official documents from city hall.

A maple leaf, a lily and a crown of towers represent the three levels of government.

The band of blue and silver waves represents the waters of the Châteauguay River, Lake Saint-Louis and the Saint-Lawrence River.

The red chevron symbolises the protection provided by the knights, reminding us of our history as a fortified outpost (1677-1689).

The five leaves are from the coat of arms of the “Sieur” Le Moyne and the English military.

The green mound topped with a windmill represents Saint-Bernard Island; still the location of a masonry tower that is part of one of the oldest windmills in North America (1686-90).

The blades of the windmill in the shape of a cross recalls the work of Marguerite d'Youville and, traditionally, the road-side cross (historic events of 1838).

The sheaf of wheat and the serrated wheel portray the richness of the land and the movement, the momentum towards the future.

Logo:

Logo of the City of Châteauguay

The turquoise colour symbolizes both the green and blue spaces.

The hexagonal form evokes both a building and an agglomeration reflected in a water way (the Châteauguay River, the Saint-Jean River and Lake Saint-Louis).

While borrowing the shape of the first letter in the word Châteauguay, it represents the activity and dynamism of the City.

The crown of towers preserves and emphasizes the history of the municipality and has been substituted for the “circonflexe” accent.

The logo is the exclusive property of the Ville de Châteauguay. It is prohibited to use the logo in any form whatsoever, in whole or in part, without the written consent of the Direction des communications et des relations publiques. To obtain consent or for more information, you may contact the Direction des communications et des relations publiques.
