On the occasion of the first edition of the «Regards vers le Haut» event organized by the MRC and CLD (Centre local de développement) during fall 2014, 14 municipalities of the MRC had the chance to express their vision of the long term needs of the region.  Each municipality also participated in a video - under the direction of Sébastien Croteau - to present itself, to talk about their accomplishments, the difficulties they face and challenges to come.

We present the Coat of Arms (Crest) that has been chosen for our municipality
The territory of Newport is vast and many facetted and, in order to represent it well,
the coat of arms is comprised of a number of the elements which characterize it.

We wish to thank all who contributed to the design of the Crest.  Notably, Ricky Parsons, Jeremy and Josh Martin and Rita Martin who won the contest that was held in 1993.  Denis Palmer who sketched and submitted several designs from the winning entries and Normand Graillon who submitted the final design.
