Coat of arms (crest) of Assiniboine Herald

Official blazon

Badge: On a pellet a plate charged with a torteau enflamed Gules embellished Or.


The badge design is based on the meaning of the word Assiniboine. The Assiniboine received their name from the Ojibway word for the Assiniboine’s practice of cooking food by dropping heated rocks into water. The black circle represents the rim of a pot looking from the top down. The red illustrates the heat from the rocks in the pot, while the white represents boiling bubbles. Granted May 2, 2001. Unfortunately we have no information on the meaning or origin of these arms yet.
