Blazon

Per saltire Gules and Argent, in chief and in base an olifant Argent, in each flank a sprig of holly Gules fructed Or;

Symbolism

The division of the shield suggests the Greek letter chi, an abbreviation for “Christ”, thus honouring the Christian faith of the founders of Paladin Disability Tax Credit Solutions Inc. The saltire division also recalls the flag of Nova Scotia, where the company’s head office is located. Red and white are the colours of the National Flag of Canada, denoting the national scope of the company’s activities. The olifant, a horn carved from an elephant’s tusk, alludes to the paladins of the medieval romance, The Song of Roland, who carried this horn into battle to summon their companions to their aid. It identifies the company as a champion for its clients in their time of need. Holly represents truth and honesty, values the company upholds in all its dealings. The gold berries suggest the “fruits” of honest dealing.
