Coat of Arms of Newfoundland and Labrador


Coat of Arms of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada consists of:

  • a red shield with a white cross
  • two white unicorns and two yellow lions occupy opposing quadrants of the shield
  • two Beothuk supporters with arrows and bows
  • a European elk (moose) above the shield on a red and gold ribbon
  • a banner that reads Quaerite prime Regnum Dei quoting Matthew 7:23 from the Bible, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God".

There is quite a history behind the crest, as it was adopted in the 17th century, forgotten, and rediscovered and re-adopted in modern times.
