A logo created by artist Jacinthe Laforest of Mont-Carmel will be the official logo for the Arsenault Reunion in the Evangeline region, Aug. 17-18.

The reunion will be part of the 2019 Word Acadian Congress.

The logo with the Acadian colours was chosen from among a large number of submissions to a contest launched last fall by the reunion organizing committee.

Laforest’s created is comprised of a large A representing a sailboat on a sea of Arsenault, Arseneau, Arseneault and Arceneaux — the various spellings of the family name throughout North America.

The sailboat is propelled by a spiral symbolizing continuity and movement. The spiral can also represent a whirlwind of ideas and encounters, according to the artist.

The logo will be used in the publicity for the reunion and will be prominently displayed on the souvenir T-shirt.
