The Victoria, British Columbia, Police Department has recently (June 8, 2010) unveiled a new coat of arms on their (also new) Dodge Charger police cars.
http://www.bclocalnews.com/vancouver_island_south/victorianews/news/95852989.html) discusses in some detail the newly-designed coat of arms as well as the meanings of the various symbols and colors in it.
I continue to admire the way much Canadian heraldry successfully meshes traditional, modern, and sometimes uniquely Canadian motifs into a harmonizing whole.
Happy New Year!
