Hampstead Coat of Arms

I took a snapshot of Hampstead's coat of arms on a public security vehicle parked near the old town hall. There were only two flag-poles at the hall (one for the Quebec flag and the other for Canada) which leads me to believe that there never was a flag for this former town. Hampstead was merged with Côte Saint-Luc to form one of the new boroughs of Montreal.

The Latin motto on the coat of arms is "Non Sibi Sed Toti" which translated means "Not to themselves but for all".
