Quebec Coat of Arms

circa 1928

Divided into 3 horizontal bands, the top band displays three fleurs de lys on a blue background. The bottom band displays three green maple leafs with gold veins, representing Canada, on a gold background. The middle band displays a Heraldic Lion with blue-coloured claws and tongue, representing the Crown.

Sitting atop those symbols is the Royal Crown representing Quebec's current relationship with England.

The Motto, "Je Me Souviens," which means 'I Remember', is printed in blue lettering beneath the Shield.
