The arms are "Gules a lion argent armed and langued gules holding in the claws the Gospel of Mark a chief azure three fleurs-de-lis or. The shield supported by two maple branches vert crossed in base in saltire and tied by a ribbon gules holding a scroll or inscribed with the motto "Sagesse que de Gouverner sans Violence" in Gothic letters."

The fleurs-de-lis recall the French Canadian ancestors and the origin of most of the population of Saint-Marc-des-Carrières.
The lion is a symbol of courage and magnanimity.
The golden book represents the Gospel of Mark.
The maple branches are the symbol of Canada.
The motto reads "Governing without Violence is Wisdom".
