The shield is surrounded by maple leaves and fleurs-de-lis that symbolize the municipality's belonging to Canada and Quebec, respectively. Above the shield is featured the writing "ST-RENÉ-DE-MATANE".

In the shield's upper part, the cross on the hill symbolizes the Christian legacy of the municipality, which was canonically erected in 1968.
In the central left part, a boat emphasizes the significance of the river.
The central right part illustrates the exploitation, with axe, of the important forest resource.
The lower left part features a sun going down behind mountains and the river.
The lower right part features a wheat garb, as a symbol of the connection with the land and of the municipality's rural vocation.

Beneath the shield, the French motto "Agriculture, Nature, Sylviculture".
