The Region

Charlevoix is a cultural and natural region located in Quebec, on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River and in the Laurentian Mountains area. The region was designated a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1989.
Administratively, it comprises the Charlevoix and Charlevoix-Est regional county municipalities, in Capitale-Nationale administrative region.
The region was named after Pierre François-Xavier de Charlevoix, a French Jesuit explorer and historian who travelled through the area in the 18th century.

The flag

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of its founding, the Charlevoix History Society created a flag in May 2013. It has been designed by a committee of members of the Historical Society jointly with the Bix communication group.
The process started in 2012 and aimed to create a symbol of identity and unity for all the people of Charlevoix, and was inspired by the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean which has had its flag since the 1930s.
The flag is inspired by the "three countries" of Charlevoix as described by Félix-Antoine Savard (a priest, academic, poet, novelist, 1896-1982, author of "Menaud maître-draveur" (English translation "Boss of the river"), a key figure in Quebec's national identity and literature):
"De vert comme la forêt environnant une partie du territoire.
D’or pour la section terrienne où s’est implantée sa population.
De bleu pour le fleuve Saint-Laurent longeant toute la côte de la région"
Green for the forest surrounding part of the territory, gold for the land section where its population settled, blue for the St. Lawrence River along the coast of the region.
According to Serge Gauthier, president of the Historical Society, it is a striped and noble flag, which has nothing to do with a coat of arms. "The three colors chosen come together in a sign of welcome and openness," he explains.
