New Brunswick Coat of Arms

McCausland, Toronto

circa 1928

The Shield is topped by a gold lion on a red background. It represents the Duchy of Brunswick in Germany, a possession of King George III at the time of New Brunswick's creation in 1784, and after which New Brunswick was named.

The galley with oars in the water represents New Brunswick's early shipbuilding history and its reliance upon the sea.
