Coat of arms (crest) of Capilano Herald Extraordinary

Official blazon

Badge: On a fusil Azure edged with rope two salmon in Salish style in orle Argent.


The salmon represent new life and their position refers to the idea of the circle of life. The Coast Salish artistic style used to depict the salmon pays tribute to the fact that the name Capilano is derived from a word in Halkomelem, a Coast Salish language. The rope around the badge refers to the famous suspension bridge spanning the Capilano Canyon, which lies between North and West Vancouver. The points of the diamond shape symbolize the four sacred directions for the First Nations, the horizontal directions of life and the vertical directions of the spirit. Granted on June 26, 2007.
