Canadian heraldry

For most of Canadian history, any citizen wanting a coat of arms had to go through the rigorous process of appealing to the 500-year-old College of Arms in London. That all changed in 1988 when Canada—at the urging of the country’s heraldic enthusiasts — successfully patriated all heraldry control from the U.K.

I had a hard time choosing an image for this post-- the link takes you to a large number of delightful coats of arms. Just one more....

The motto isn't translated in the article-- it's Our Land, Our Strength.

Link thanks to silveradept.
