The municipality of Saint-Raymond (9,234 inhabitants in 2006; 685 sq. km) is located in the Portneuf MRC, north of the town of Quebec. Founded on 25 May 1842 in the Gosford Township, the Saint-Raymond parish was divided in 1898 into two municipalities (Paroisse de Saint-Raymond and Village, later Ville, de Saint-Raymond) , that were eventually reunited on 1995 under the name of Saint-Raymond.

On 22 July 2010, the "Courrier de Portneuf" shows a photo of the local athlete Éric Lapointe holding the municipal flag, which is white with the municipal coat of arms surmounting the writing "VILLE DE SAINT-RAYMOND" in black letters.

The coat of arms of Saint-Raymond is "Azure a gusset* gules, dexter a dove displayed descending or holding in her beak a branch of olive vert fructed gules, sinister a millrind argent, the gusset charged with a cross flory or, in base a fess wavy argent. The shield supported by two branches of maple vert, leaved of the same, slipped and seeded or, crossed per saltire and tied together by a ribbon gules bearing a scroll or charged with the motto in Gothic letters "Pax in veritate".

The dove with the olive branch is a symbol of peace, recalling that the municipality was named for St. Raymond Nonnatus (1204- 240), a Catalan monk member of the Mercedarian Order, founded to ransom Christian captives of the Moors The cross flory recalls the French Canadian Catholics who founded the parish and the current faith of its citizens. The millrind recalls wooden industry, the first developed in the region. The fess wavy symbolizes river Sainte-Anne. The maple branch recalls Canada. The motto "Pax in veritate" means "Peace inside Truth".

*According to Brian Timms, a gusset is a rare charge, made of "a pall with the chief part filled in, forming a triangle at the top of the shield, which is joined to a pale".
