The circle represents a porthole providing a window on our past and our marine heritage.
The codfish was the determining factor in the settling of Bay Roberts. The flat rocks in the
beaches of Bay Roberts East afforded an opportunity to dry fish without the use of flakes. In
later years, a major salt fish plant was established in the Town. The fish symbol was painted on
the main door of the plant.
The dots and dashes spell out Bay Roberts Heritage Society in Morse code and are emblematic
of the Western Union Cable Company and its socio-economic impact on the Town.
