The symbol is that of a crowned gold lion holding a red maple leaf. The lion is a symbol of valour and courage. The crest is used to mark Canada's independence and is now the symbol used on the Governor General's Standard.
THE SHIELD
The design reflects the 3 royal lions of England, the royal lion of Scotland, the royal fleurs-de-lis of France and the royal Irish harp of Tara (a symbol of Ireland). At the bottom the sprig of 3 Canadian maple leaves represents Canadians of all origins.
THE RIBBON
