This coat of arms shows the Acadian flag in the canton. Saint-Gervais parish was founded by 13 Acadian refugee families, in the fief the Livaudière or Nouvelle-Cadie, who settle d there in 1756 after being expelled from their homeland. The Acadians left about 15 years later for nearby areas, and Saint-Gervais was resettled by Scots and French-Canadians. The two first rangs of the parish still recall the original Acadian settlers: Première Cadie and Deuxième Cadie.
