The shield is paled into two fields of sanguine and sable (maroon and black), which represent the qualities of patience and faithfulness coming together to achieve success. It is surrounded of sanguine, or, and vert (maroon, gold, and green), symbolizing security that is drawn from a foundation of persistence, compassion, and hope. The shield is emblazoned with an Olde English lion rampant that portends strength and ferocity but its claws and tongue of argent (silver) remind us that the tools and words of the brave are often colored by peace and cooperation. The Crown surmounted atop the crest honours the history of New Westminster as being the first capitol and Royal City of British Columbia, Canada.
