The upper portion of the shield is divided in two.
To the left, the arms of Perche pay tribute to Pierre Tremblay, the
Tremblay family ancestor, born c. 1626 in Randonnai, a small town in
the Perche region of France. To the right, against a red background,
the crowned gold falcon is based on the arms of Aunis, also in
France, and recalls the fact that Ozanne Achon, wife of Pierre
Tremblay, was born in Chambon in the diocese of La Rochelle. The
centre of the shield depicts two interlaced rings symbolizing the
union of the ancestral couple. The stars represent the many families
that proudly bear the name Tremblay today.
REMBLE ET VA SANS BIAIS meaning “Tremble and
move forward without hesitation”. Here, TREMBLE means to vibrate, in
the sense of perceiving with every fibre of one’s being the very
pulse and energy of the surrounding environment, as a leaf might
quiver in the wind. VA (“go”) is an invitation to begin moving
toward one’s destiny. SANS BIAIS means without hesitation or deceit.
The first two words of the motto, TREMBLE ET, also refer to the
family name Tremblay. In this way, the motto can also be read as
“Tremblay va sans biais,” meaning “Tremblay walks straight ahead.”
