Joliette

Joliette (20,500 inhabitants on 23 km²), named after its founder, was incorporated in 1864 and became a “cité” in 1918. It merged with Joliette-Sud (created in 1957) in 1966, and became a “ville” in 1981.
Olivier Touzeau, 14 July 2017

Barthélemy Joliette (1789-1850), notary in L'Assomption, married Marie-Charlotte Tarieu Taillant de Lanaudière (1795-1871), the heiress of a part of the domain of Lavaltrie. In 1823, he founded a settlement near river L'Assomption, known to the natives as Outaragavesipi, "the sinuous river". Joliette established sawmills and flour mills, and founded the building of a manor (1823), a bridge (1824), a public market (1837), a parish church (1842), a presbytery (1844), and a secondary school (1845). Then named Industrie, the settlement was connected in 1850 to Lanoraie by the railway.

Design

The flag of the City of Joliette consists of two squares, blue and white. On the hoist square appears the municipal coat of arms. In the fly square appears VILLE DE JOLIETTE in black sans-serif letters centred on three lines. Both of these charges substantially fill their fields. The coat of arms has a simple shield with a horizontal top and a rounded base, divided horizontally by a wavy blue band with three black birds in a row, oriented to the left. The panel above is yellow/orange with a cogwheel (gear) in blue, the panel below is yellow/orange with a sprig of corn with a tobacco leaf at either side, over a curved mound, all in green with black details. Above the shield is a six-towered mural crown in yellow with black details; below is a wavy ribbon in yellow with the inscription INDUSTRIA DITAT in black sans-serif letters.

Symbolism

The city’s documentation interprets the arms: The crown represents the authority of the city council and its citizens’ security. In heraldry, the yellow colour of the shield represents the future. The gear represents industry and commerce, which makes the City of Joliette progress. The three black birds [heraldic martlets—legless fowl] represent the coat of arms of the de Lanaudière family. Marie-Charlotte Tarieu-Taillant de Lanaudière was the wife of Barthélemy Joliette [who founded the city as “L’Industrie” in 1863]. The corn cob symbolizes agriculture in general, which feeds our citizens. Furthermore, two crossing tobacco leaves indicate the more specific agricultural production of the region, all on a green base. The Latin motto Industria ditat translates as “industry enriches”.

Joliette is twinned with Brive-la-Gaillarde (France), and a variant flag of Joliette can be sometimes spotted there, see:

The flag is 2:3, vertically divided with a blue hoist (2/5) with the coat of arms and the words “VILLE DE JOLIETTE” in black in the white fly (3/5).

This is a scan from Ian Campbell, The Identifying Symbols of Canadian Municipal Institutions, Waterloo 1990. The city motto is "Industrie", which is probably illustrated by the beehive and the beaver. I doubt that the city still flies this flag as it is not a "cité" anymore, but a "ville".
