Made by François Lambert of La Tuque QC (Summer 1998). My translation:
"Green and yellow represent the main industries in the region:
respectively foresting and agriculture. Blue is for the Saint-Maurice river
and its geographical alignment (North West). The five parts of the flag are
for the [then] five MRC of the area: Maskinongé, Francheville, Mékinac, Le
Centre-de-la-Mauricie and Le Haut-Saint-Maurice."
