The Coat of Arms of Manitoba, first assigned May 10, 1905 by King Edward VII, was augmented on October 23, 1992 by Governor-General Ramon Hnatyshyn. The 1905 shield is at its centre, while above are a gold helmet, red and silver mantlings, a beaver holding a prairie crocus, and finally a crown. A unicorn and a white horse support the left and right sides. Other elements that symbolize Manitoba’s past include maple leaves, the wheel of a Red River cart, and Aboriginal bead and bone decorations. The shield and supporters rest on a base representing a diverse landscape, with a banner below bearing the Latin version of the provincial motto, “Glorious and Free.”
