Coat Of Arms

I found this 3-dimensional version of the Canadian Coat Of Arms to be quite striking in the sunshine. This had been the official coat of arms since 1921 and references many aspects of our country's history.

Test my rusty Latin: from the sea all the way to the sea?

You know, if you squint and make the image blurry this could be some wild Hindu device.

It's beautiful and I'm making a mental note to learn more about the references of this coat of arms . Always embarrassed at how little I know .

I love seeing different coats of arms. So much interesting symbolism and it's a neat way to give a history visually.

That is very elaborate and beautiful. I should start studying it, in case Donald Trump is elected and I have to move.
