The Coat of Arms of Saskatchewan
The Coat of Arms was granted initially by the Governor General of Canada in 1986, and exemplifies the provincial colors of gold and green. On the gold chief is a red leopard or lion passant, and the bottom features three gold garbs of wheat on a green backdrop, which depicts the agriculture of the province. Atop the shield is the Royal Helmet that faces left, and is topped by a red and white mantle and wreath. A beaver (national symbol of Canada) rests on the wreath holding a Western Red Lily (which is the official flower of the province). Supporting the shield on the left is a white tailed deer and the right hosts a golden Royal Lion, both sporting collars of Prairie Indian beadwork.
