The Canada goose in flight indicates the many migratory birds that use Royal Botanical Gardens’ nature sanctuaries as habitat. The Atlantic salmon recalls those that used to spawn in tributaries of Lake Ontario, including the wetlands within the boundaries of the Gardens. The trillium is indicative of the many wild flowers in the area and is an emblem of the province of Ontario. The maple leaf represents the Gardens and the landscapes and the many peoples of Canada.
The three maple leaves allude to the arms of Ontario, and to Canada generally, while the circlet symbolizes a wall around a garden.
