Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on February 20, 2009.

The lion’s head represents the Norman origins of Damien Berrubé, ancestor of the North American Bérubés. The three annulets, here representing three centuries of history, also symbolize the three virtues named in the motto, as well as Damien’s Christian faith. The embattled line suggests a wall and represents the ancestor’s trade as a mason. The fleur-de-lis represents France and New France, while the ship and sheaf of wheat symbolize the trades of the early generations of Bérubés in the Americas.

The squirrel and chevron are taken from the crest of the arms of people named Barroby and Barrow, with the colours reversed. They therefore represent patronymics with roots similar to those of the Bérubés.

The motto means “With faith, courage and wisdom.”Literature: Image and information from http://www.gg.ca
