|PEI becomes the last province to receive an updated coat of arms. The coat of arms is described as follows:|
The shield with a lion above a large oak tree and three small oak saplings on a green island were granted to the province by King Edward VII in 1905.
A golden helmet represents the province's status in Confederation, the mantling and wreath are in the official colours of Canada.
A blue jay, the provincial bird, holds a leaf of the provincial tree, the red oak, and wears the royal crown.
Silver foxes, reflecting Islanders' industry and ingenuity, serve as supporters. They wear garlands of potato blossoms and a length of net representing agriculture and the fishery.
The Mi'kmaq star is centred at the base of the shield, surrounded by floral references to early European settlers, and the lady slipper which is the provincial flower.
PEI's motto Parva sub Ingenti — the small under the protection of the great — is the final part of the symbol.
