Description of the flag

Flag is a logo on white.
Dave Fowler, 1 March 2022

The parish municipality of Plessisville was established on 1 July 1855, as the canton municipality of Somerset-Sud. It completely surrounds the village municipality of Plessisville, which was established on 27 April 1855 and transformed into a town on 10 February 1955.
The parish municipality of Plessisville adopted the same name as the town it surrounds in 1946.
Municipal website

Plessisville is named for Joseph-Octave Plessis (1763-1825), Bishop (1806), then Archbishop (1819-1825) of Quebec.

Flag is a logo on white.
The identity of the parish of Plessisville is defined around four poles: the citizen and his family, business, agriculture, and leisure and community.

The municipality's geography is illustrated by a scattered lozenge synthesizing the somewhat irregular shape of the territory. The lozenge is composed of four sectors made of square units and diversified rectangles, which represent both unity and group. Each sector is identified by a color: red, a symbol of emotion, identifies the citizen and his family; green represents agriculture, smaller and bigger farms, as well; yellow, the sun's bright color, is associated with leisure and community; navy blue, a synonym of prestige and seriousness, illustrates business, smaller and bigger companies, as well.

Blue is also used for the intricate "P" of "Paroisse de Plessisville" and for the baseline. The "double P" is framed in a square space suggesting structure and organization. The typography, chosen as legible and modern, was adapted to the logo's construction lines. The typeface is Geomanist, designed by Atipo.

For general perception, in compliance with the baseline, no space is closed. Circulation is made possible through any element. When the logo is identified to any of the four sectors, it rotates like windmill toys so that the matching color is placed in the lower part, close to the baseline.

The colors are prescribed as:

Pantone 7698C - 7706U
