Azure a mullet Or between three dolphins Argent;
Two anchors in saltire Azure surmounted by the badge of the regiment Les Fusiliers Mont Royal proper;
The blue alludes to the sea. The star commemorates the Acadian descent of Mr. Arsenault, and the dolphins represent the Gaspé Peninsula, his native region.
The two anchors recall the mariner occupation of Pierre Arsenault, the first ancestor to arrive in Quebec. The badge of the Fusiliers Mont Royal refers to Mr. Arsenault’s military service in that regiment.
SEMPER PROCEDENS, meaning “Always forward”, mirrors the motto of the Fusiliers Mont Royal, “NUNQUAM RETRORSUM” which translates as “Never backward”.
