A legendary
coat of arms

 

The seal of Université Laval takes its distinctive features from Bishop François de Laval's coat of arms: a shield bearing a cross charged with five scallops and four alerions in each quarter. However, the colours are inverted, signifying the spiritual link between Université Laval and the first bishop of Québec and founder of Séminaire de Québec.

 
 
 

A modern university
with centuries of experience

 

For 350 years Université Laval has shown tomorrow's leaders how to achieve their goals and has demonstrated its commitment to tackling society's greatest challenges.
