Flag of Roxboro

      Coat of Arms

      Logo of Roxboro

I spotted the flag of Roxboro still flying outside the borough's old city hall (hotel de ville). The flag consists of a green border on its left and right sides. The middle bears Roxboro's coat of arms. The motto is "PER ASPERA AD ASTRA".

I took the photograph of the old town logo near the Roxboro suburb train station. On its left side are geometric shapes forming the shape of the letter "R" for Roxboro. On the right side is drawn the outline of the front of a train. The train station in the borough is a major travel stop for Montreal West Islanders who travel to/from Montreal City's downtown core on a daily basis for work or study at university.
