    Flags, Coats of Arms & Symbols
                                        from the
     Island of Montreal

This website is dedicated to preserving the history of flags, coats
of arms and symbols from the Island of Montreal in the province
of Quebec, Canada.

 

Prior to 2002, the island of Montreal was not only occupied by the city of Montreal but by an additional 27 town municipalities. After the Quebec government had passed legislation, these towns were merged with the city of Montreal to form a new "Mega-City". The former municipalities were changed to boroughs of Montreal. The city administration has slowly begun the process of removing the symbols of these former towns and replacing them with Montreal City logos. The intention of this website is to preserve the flags, coats of arms and symbols of these former municipalities along with those of the new mega-city.
