About the Prairie Branch

Welcome to the Prairie Branch of the Royal Heraldry Society of Canada.

The badge depicts fur which represents the fur trade which originally lured Europeans to the Prairies, and which still continues today. The vair is in sable and or rather than the traditional azure and argent because these are the colours of the furs which are actually found in Canada, as well as the colours of our wheat fields and our rich soil. The black pieces also resemble grain elevators, which once proudly graced every community in the area.
