Description of the flag

The municipality of Saint-Tharcisius (510 inhabitants in 2008; 7,961 ha) is located in Matapédia Regional County Municipality, Region Bas-Saint-Laurent.

Saint-Tharcisius was settled in 1912, and erected as a mission in 1922, a parish in 1926, and a municipality in October 1926. The municipality is named for St. Tarcisius, listed as a Christian martyr in an epigram written by Pope Damasus I at least a century after the event. Tarcisius is there said to have been beaten to death by a pagan mob rather than deliver to them the Blessed Sacrament, which he was carrying.

Fraternity - Work". The maple green leaves surrounding the shield symbolize Québec.
