Quebec Heraldry

There are many cities in Quebec which have been granted or have assumed coats of arms. Although Quebec has been part of a monarchy since its foundation, there is a strong anti-monarchist feeling in this province, so many civic authorities do not feel the need to have arms properly granted by a monarch they (or many of their citizens) do not support. Cities marked with maple leaves have legally granted arms, while those marked with a single green leaf have fine arms which should be granted. Blue dots mark poorly designed arms which have no legal authority behind them (note: the difference between the green leaf and the blue dot reflects my opinions, nothing more).

If you know of any coats of arms that I've missed (and there are lots, I know), please let me know where I can find them (or mail me a colour copy that I can scan). Any page with the badge of the Heraldry Society of Canada is one where I scanned the coat of arms from an HSC publication, either Beddoe's Canadian Heraldry, or an article in Heraldry in Canada. Credit where credit is due.
