Meaning

The gold lioin represents New Brunswick's ties to both the Brunswick region in Germany and (the arms of) the Monarch of Canada. The Scottish Lymphad, the traditional representation of a ship in heraldry, represents shipbuilding, one of the province's main industries at the time the coat of arms was adopted and throughout much of the province's history.
