PARISH OF SAINT GEORGE'S (Georgetown, Quebec)

Denomination : Anglican

Arms of Parish of St. George's, Georgetown

Official blazon

Azure a cross Gules fimbriated between four trillium flowers Argent; Motto: GROW IN THE GRACE AND KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on Otober 15, 2004.

The red cross on white is the symbol of St. George. It has been made unique to the parish by the addition of the blue background and the white trillium flowers. The use of the blue makes an allusion to the Royal Union Flag and therefore to the pre-Confederation origins of the parish.

The trillium appears in the arms of the Diocese of Niagara, and it can also serve as a Trinitarian symbol.

The motto is taken from 2 Peter 3:18.
