History The name of the region dates formally from 1985, but as early as 1964, the Regional Chamber of Commerce pronounced for this name. It originates from the fact that a significant part of its territory was part of the Lanaudière seigneury from the French regime5. Logo It was in 1985 that the regional symbol of Lanaudière, referring to L'Assomption's great traditional sash belt with flashes and flames, was adopted. This motif represents the energy and ardor of the Lanaudois. The concept comes from Joliettain Guy Jobin and is composed of three blue flashes connected in the form of a triangle; Three flashes representing the three major sectors of activity of the region are agri-food, culture and tourism and finally industry and commerce. The symbol is completed by red flames, outside the triangle, meaning export, a source of power for the region6.
