The seal's red and gray colours represent the colors of the rocks present on the fossil site.HistoryNouvelle was first settled by Acadians fleeing the deportation of 1755, fish merchants from Jersey, Channel Islands and some Irish. The name Nouvelle (French meaning "new") was used as early as the end of the 18th century and stood for the "new land" being made available West of town now called Carleton-sur-Mer.
