Coat of arms (crest) of Outaouais Herald Emeritus

Official blazon

Badge: On a pomme three inescutcheons Argent the bases pointing inwards.


Green is the dominant colour because it perfectly evokes the Outaouais region, known for its many green spaces and its tremendous natural beauty. The three identical shields recall the history and geography associated with the name Outaouais. From a historical standpoint, they hark back to a tradition of the Outaouais, shared by the Objibway and the Potawatomi, whereby these three groups formed a single tribe at one point. From a geographic standpoint, they refer to the Outaouais, the Rideau and the Gatineau Rivers which were the first routes used by explorers to access the territory. Furthermore, the three shields represent the three main divisions of time: past, present and future. The fact that the shields are identical conveys the idea that these divisions of time have equal importance in the life of an individual. Granted on March 28, 2000.
