City flag

This former county-level entity was formed of the municipalities that merged in 2002 to form the new city of Québec. The two cubes represent the importance and solidity of the links that bind the member municipalities to attain their goals. The space inside the cubes illustrates open-mindedness and the desire to work with all towards the socio-economic development of the region and the well-being of its population. The white arrow-like borders underscore the dynamic character of the administrators, while the darker parts evoke the services given by the CUQ. Green stands for the preoccupations of the CUQ for environment, green spaces and the ordered and rational management of the territory. The perspective created by the whole illustrates the size of the present and future responsibilities of the CUQ. Donald Gauthier first described this flag to me with the only difference that it had capital letters. This is how I saw it flying in Quebec City.
