Coat of arms (crest) of Central Saanich Police Service

Official blazon

Arms : Or between two flaunches barry wavy Argent and Azure each charged with a salmon hauriant, a thunderbird in Coast Salish style displayed proper, a rose Gules, and a Tibetan blue poppy Azure
Motto: Strength through community


The arms were officially granted on July 28, 2008.

The shield is adapted from the arms created for the district of Central Saanich by Professor A.L.C. Atkinson in 1968. The central stripe alludes to the Saanich Peninsula, and the salmon and the stylized waves indicate the close proximity of the ocean. The thunderbird represents the heritage of the local First Nations. The red rose refers to the community’s British heritage and the local flower cultivation industry, as well as local attractions such as the famous Butchart Gardens, the arms of which Butchart Gardens Limited, granted by the Chief Herald of Canada in 1994, include a red rose and a Tibetan blue poppy.
