DAUPHIN HERALD EXTRAORDINARY

Institute: Canadian Heraldic Authority

Coat of arms (crest) of Dauphin Herald Extraordinary

Official blazon

Badge: On a representation of a Micmac trade silver brooch Argent a dolphin all within a bordure Azure.

Origin/meaning

The two main components of the badge of the Dauphin Herald Extraordinary are a blue heraldic dolphin displayed on a stylization of a Micmac trade silver brooch of the type made for fur traders in the 17th and 18th centuries and traded to many of the First Nations. The badge is outlined with a wavy band of blue, referring both to the waters of the Rivière Dauphin (the former name of the Annapolis River) and more widely to the seas, lakes and rivers of Atlantic Canada. Granted on August 4, 1998.
