The Armorial Bearings





The decision by the Board of Managers of The St. Andrew’s Society of Winnipeg to
apply to the Chief Herald of Canada for a Grant of Armorial Bearings was taken
at the Board meeting on April 11, 2006, upon a recommendation from the
Communications Committee and Executive Operations Committee. Following a
lengthy design process involving extensive historical and other consultations,
a final design was completed and the Armorial Bearings were formally granted on
November 20, 2009. The official Letters Patent and Painting were presented to
the Board at its meeting in June 2010. The St. Andrew’s Society of Winnipeg
