Rationale: The golden field recalls the prairies and wheat cultivation that is featured in the province’s coat of arms. A canton recalls those that appeared in the label of the arms of Princess Louise Caroline Alberta after whom the province was named, though here coloured blue that along with the golden field is a provincial colour. The rose that also featured on her heraldic label is placed on the golden field to represent the ‘prairie rose’ that is Alberta’s official flower. In the canton is charged a long horn sheep, the provincial animal, and symbol of the rocky mountains.
