Corner Brook, Armorial Bearings
TitleCorner Brook, Armorial Bearings
Scope and Content of FondsThis file consists of a single document, the armorial bearings of the city of Corner Brook, Newfoundland. It is dated October 8, 1976 and signed by Patrick Griffin who was mayor of Corner Brook at that time. The armorial bearings were first presented during the official opening of Corner Brook City Hall in 1956. - - The armorial bearings were designed to reflect things of significance in Corner Brook's history. The shield on the coat of arms has a background in the shape of an inverted V, the upper part in green and the lower part is eight wavy blue and silver bars. This symbolizes the forests and the waters of Humber Arm where Corner Brook is situated. In the chief position is a wavy blue stripe between two golden uprooted Newfoundland fir trees. The border is quartered in blue and silver, showing eight upright maple leaves in their autumn colours. The crest is a silver and green wreath supporting a green hill, representing Corner Brook, on which stands Newfoundland's provincial flower, a northern pitcher plant. -
