The Badge of Claude Joseph Bourret

The Pennon of Claude Joseph Bourret

The original design concept by the armiger in cooperation with Samy Khalid, Saguenay Herald, assisted by the Heralds of the Canadian Heraldic Authority.

Painter: Debra MacGarvie

Calligrapher: Doris Wionzek

The standard combines the emblems granted to the armiger in March 2000. The standard bearer, exemplified by the Canadian Heraldic Authority, symbolises and therefore represents the armiger’s ancestor Gilles Bourée, dressed in the colours of the flag of the Régiment de Carignan to which he belonged. The base alludes to Charlesbourg, near Quebec City, a region known for wheat growing and its elm trees, where he settled in the 17th century.

The symbolism of the pennon echoes that of the Arms. The lion, exemplified by the Canadian Heraldic Authority, symbolises and recalls the Arms of Normandy, and its crown alludes to Royal France. The compartment represents the Island of Montreal, the armiger’s birthplace, on the shores of the St. Lawrence River.

For the badge, the bundle of sticks (bourrée in French) honours Gilles Bourée, the armiger’s Norman ancestor and the first in the family to settle in Canada. The axe is a pun on the name of this ancestor's wife, Marie de Bellehache (composed of the French words belle, ''beautiful'', and hache, ''axe''). The red colour of the axe in the badge is from the de Baillehache arms. The ring with fleurs-de-lis represents a crown and embodies the armiger’s love for the ancient Kingdom of France, the country of his forebears, as well as his passion for genealogy.
