MEDICAL SOCIETY OF NOVA SCOTIA
Arms : Murrey a pallet Or entwined about by a serpent, on a chief Argent a saltire Azure
Motto : HEALTH AND HUMANITY
The arms were officially granted on April 27, 1954 (Scotland) and registered in Canada on March 27, 2021.
The dark red evokes the colour of blood. The snake-entwined rod alludes to the rod of Aesculapius, the Greco-Roman god of medicine. The blue saltire on white is inspired by the arms and flag of Nova Scotia, where the Society is located.
The motto is a reminder of the doctor’s purpose.
