Ontario Coat of Arms   

Photo:  Ontario Coat of Arms

The coat of arms of Ontario was granted by Royal Warrant of Queen Victoria on 26 May 1868.

The Crest: a black bear standing on a gold and green wreath

The Supporters: a moose and deer

The Motto: Ut incepit Fidelis sic permanet, Latin for Loyal she began, loyal she remains.  It refers to the Loyalist refugees from the American Revolution, who settled in Ontario while it was still part of Quebec, and for whom the area was separated as Upper Canada.


Photo:  Ontario Shield of Arms - Centennial Flame

The shield of arms - which appears on Ontario's flag and coat of arms - consists of three golden maple leaves, representing Canada, on a green background.

On the top is the Cross of St. George, the name saint of King George III, in allegiance to whom the Loyalists first came to the land that would form the province.
