City

Mont-Laurier is a town and a municipality in northwest Quebec, Canada, in the Laurentides regions. It is the seat of Antoine-Labelle Regional County Municipality.
There are 14,000 inhabitants on 590.76 km² of land area, and Mont-Laurier is one of the largest municipalities in Quebec.
Mont-Laurier is known as the "Capital of the Haute-Laurentides".
In 2003, Mont-Laurier merged with the neighbouring towns Des Ruisseaux and Saint-Aimé-du-Lac-des-Îles, with the name Mont-Laurier being chosen for the combined municipality. Following a 2004 demerger referendum vote, Saint-Aimé-du-Lac-des-Îles left Mont-Laurier in 2006 to be reconstituted as an independent municipality.

The city also has a white flag with coat of arms, in use together with the current logo flag. See:

The coat of arms of Mont-Laurier are or, a bend raguly gules, between a moose's head cabossed sable surmounted by a star azure, and a mountain of three hillocks sable on a fess wavy couped azure.
(d'or, à la bande écotée de gueules, accompagnée en chef d'une rencontre d'orignal de sable surmontée d'une étoile d'azur ; en pointe d'une montagne à trois coupeaux de sable soutenue d'une onde alésée d'azur)
The motto of the town is "Laurus elationis praemium" (Lift the laurels of reward) and the shield is supported by laurel branches.

Olivier Touzeau, 14 June 2020

From http://www.villemontlaurier.qc.ca/DATA/DOCUMENT/Interpretation des armoiries.pdf:
The arms were designed in March 1951 by the Drouin Genealogical Institute, upon request of the Municipal Council.
The raggy bend, in width one fourth of the shield's width, represents timber industry, the region's main industry.
The moose's head represents Moose's Fall, at the origin on Mont-Laurier.
The region's natural environment is represented by the mountain and th river.
The Latin motto reads "Laurel awards Nobleness".

Previous flag

[Mont-Tremblant flag] image by Olivier Touzeau, 14 June 2020

I reproduced this flag from a photo in Jim croft's collection. The color looked black, but it could have been a very dark green. Translated from city documentation:

The logo on the white field reproduces the letters M and L for Mont-Laurier, in a single movement, as a ribbon with looping extremities. Its exterior line and interior space represent a mountainous landscape. Through its color, the logo expresses the dignity and strength of the forests of Quebec's North.
Luc Baronian, 22 May 2005

The former logo of Mont-Laurier was actually dark green, see
