|The André Marsil’s Descendants Association
logo was adopted in 1994 at the second annual general assembly of the members.
The logo is explained here
A shield-shaped COAT OF ARMS
We are the descendants of the Marsil/Lefebvre couple
By assembling both colors (red and silver) and the three charges (cross, fleur-de-lis, plumb line), we created a coat of arms for the that can be described as follows in heraldry language:
Gules on a pale argent a plumb line gules between two gyron gules; at dexter a patriarchal cross argent, at sinister a fleur-de-lys argent.
The plumb line illustrates the couple’s descendants.
THE LOGO’S OTHER ORNAMENTS
A CROWN: above the shield, featuring the acronym of the André Marsil’s Descendants Association: from which emerge garlands of stylized leaves surrounding the shield, surmounted by Quebec’s fleur-de-lis.
A SCROLL: under the shield, on which is inscribed the Association’s motto in Latin: “Fidenter” (With aplomb).
