About Cégep Vert du Québec

The "Cégep Vert du Québec" program was started in autumn 2004 by the "ENvironnement JEUnesse association" (in English, "Environment Youth", "enjeu" meaning "stake") for the certification of environment-aware cégeps ("vert" means "green" in French). A cégep ("Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel") is a post-secondary education institution exclusive to the Province of Quebec. There are today 29 certified cégeps in Quebec, two of them (Rosemont and Saint-Laurent) with the "excellence" award. - Presentation of the "Cégep Vert du Québec" program, ENJEU website

Flag of Cégep Vert du Québec

On 29 May 2008, ENvironnement JEUnesse unveiled in Montreal the list of the certified cégeps, which were granted a distinctive flag. The flag is white with the logo of the "Cégep Vert du Québec" program, made of a stylized white fleur-de-lis on a blue background (recalling the flag of Quebec), a green leaf, and, on the right side of the emblem, the writing Cégep / Vert / du Québec in black letters. A photography of the flag awarded to the Alma cégep is shown by "LE bulletin Régional Saguenay-Saint-Jean", 2 June 2008.
