Coat of Arms
The town of Anjou, Québec was founded in 1956 on a section of land originally owned by the parish of Saint-Léonard-de-Port-Maurice. The rest of the land under the parish eventually became the town of Saint-Léonard.
The arms of Anjou, Québec are inspired from the arms of the province of Anjou, France (seen below) to which it was named after. To distinguish the two, the designers added a bend argent emblazoned with three Canadian maple leaves vert. The number of fleur-de-lis were also increased.
The town's motto was "Non Devius Unquam" or "I Never Deviate" as translated from Latin.
