[box][center][b][color=blue][size=200]The Maritimes Regional
 Coat of Arms[/size][/color][/b][/box][/center]

[center][color=red][i]See description below.[/i][/color]
[b][color=blue]The flag of [region]The Maritimes[/region] is the new Coat of Arms (above) on a white field.[/b][/color][/center]

[floatleft][box][b][color=green][u]COAT OF ARMS DESCRIPTION:[/u][/b][/color]

The [color=green][b]escutcheon (shield)[/b][/color] is 
a field of or (gold) charged with
 three different symbols, one to 
represent each of Canada's three
 Maritime provinces. The gold
 colour represents one similar 
to heraldic colours used in each
 province. Nova Scotia's official
 flower, the [b]mayflower[/b], 
Prince Edward Island's official 
tree, the oak, is represented
 by an [b]acorn[/b], and
 New Brunswick is
 represented by its popular
 native riverside delicacy,
 the [b]fiddlehead[/b].

The [b][color=green]crown[/b][/color] over the escutcheon is a
 red maple leaf, honouring The 
Maritimes' role as a part of Canada.

The [b][color=green]order[/b][/color] is a yellow five-pointed
 star. Taken from the Acadian
 flag, the star represents the
 francophone Acadians spread
 throughout the three provinces.[/box][/floatleft]

[floatright][box][color=green][b]Supporters:[/b][/color]The dexter supporter
 is a [i]stag rampant guardant[/i].
 The sinister supporter is a [i]red fox 
rampant to sinister[/i]. Both animals
 are common in The Maritimes and 
their inclusion as supporters in the
 coat of arms are meant to represent 
the aboriginal peoples as stewards of
 the land and waters.

The [color=green][b]compartment[/b][/color] is a grassy
 field above a long wave
 of water to represent the 
importance of land and sea 
industries of [region]The Maritimes[/region]. 

The [b][color=green]motto[/b][/color], "[b]Boreas domus, 
Mare amicus[/b]" means "[i]The north
 is our home, the sea is our 
friend[/i]", a motto shared with
 Scotland's Orkney Islands.[/box]
