In 2009, the flower Baptisia australis and the white spruce tree became, respectively, the floral and arboreal emblems of the Ville de Mont-Tremblant.
The Baptisia australis, originally from the United State, was formerly used as a dye. It is a perennial in the lupin family and can grow to a metre in height. Its flower spikes can be as much as 40 centimetres in length.
It was desigated the floral emblem of the Ville because it was the favourite flower of Curé Deslauriers, the first curé, or parish priest, of the Sacré-Cœur-de-Jésus parish. He played a pivotal role in the development of Mont-Tremblant.
The white spruce is one of the coniferous trees most widely spread across North America. It can attain a height of about 40 metres and live up to 125 years. It is considered the queen of our Québec forests, which won it the title of arboreal emblem of the Ville.
