A new look for Saint-Chrysostome

The municipality of Saint-Chrysostome unveiled its new image on April 13 before more than 40 elected officials and business owners, including members of the municipal council as well as Huntingdon MNA Carole Mallette, during an event at the Centre Culturel du Dr. Marc Hétu.

Four companies, whose owners are all residents of Saint-Chrysostome, were invited in April 2021 to submit design proposals that represented the municipality. After several rounds of deliberations, the council selected the design submitted by Daniel Dumas, the owner of the Ormstown-based printing company, Multi-Graph.

In a press release, Mayor Steve Laberge said the council, including himself, was very proud of the new look. “It is a beautiful logo!” he exclaimed.

The new logo reflects Saint-Chrysostome’s community spirit in a dynamic and modern way. The lines that appear like DNA strands signify a tightly woven community. The colours are all symbolic: the yellow and green represent the farmed fields and woodlands that surround the village, while the blue represents the rivers that flow through the municipality. Without being overtly religious, the dots that replace the letter ‘i’ are a discreet nod to the church, which is an easily identifiable visual landmark. The maple leaf in the ‘o’ represents the significance of maple syrup production to the municipality.

The municipality confirmed that the coat of arms, which had been widely used to represent Saint-Chrysostome, will continue to be used but in a more official or legal context.
