This is the municipal flag of Anjou (Quebec), a town located in eastern Montreal island [where I grew up!]. It's an orange-gold field with the arms : Anjou ancient defaced with a white band with three green maple leaves, plus motto of duke Gaston d'Anjou NON DEVIUS UNQUAM under the shield and laurel leaves surrounding it.
Note: Maple leaves are usually green in Quebec (and sometimes Ontarian, where
they are often gold) heraldry. Red maple leaves are a (more) recent innovation
used as pan-canadian colors.
