City flag

This is the municipal flag of Anjou (Quebec), a town located in eastern Montreal island [where I grew up!]. It's an orange-gold field with the arms : Anjou ancient defaced with a white band with three green maple leaves, plus motto of duke Gaston d'Anjou NON DEVIUS UNQUAM under the shield and laurel leaves surrounding it.

Note: Maple leaves are usually green in Quebec (and sometimes Ontarian, where they are often gold) heraldry. Red maple leaves are a (more) recent innovation used as pan-Canadian colors.
Luc-Vartan Baronian, 22 June 1998


The flag is still used as a borough flag. Luc Baronian, 9 May 2005

Prior flag

In the 1980s, there was also an orange flag with a white logo representing the letters "V" and "A" for Ville d'Anjou. The orange was much more pronounced than on the flag with arms. The logo was replaced in 1992, but I have never seen the second logo on a flag. Beaudoin reports that the flag with the coat of arms also included the name of the city in those years.
