The logo
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

ANDRÉ MARSIL, was born in St-Omer; on St-Omer’s coat of arms, the shield is red with a silver patriarchal cross.
MARIE LEFEBVRE, was born in Soissons; on Soissons’ coat of arms, the shield is red with a silver fleur-de-lis. 

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. 


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)

This logo is the result of researches by Father Michel Marcil SJ, secretary of the A.D.A.M. from 1993 to 1997.  He has conceived and drawn it with the info-graphic assistance of Grégoire Marcil.
