Vol. VII, p. 4
Arms of Laurier Payette-Flynn, child of Julie Payette
Per pale Azure and Sable a wing and in the canton the Royal Crown Argent, debruised of a three-point label set with laurel leaves Or;
A symbol of exploration and liberty, an open wing embodies our desire to reach higher and expand our horizons. As with birds protecting their young, the wing also conveys the strength and safety of family ties. Moreover, it represents the career of Mr. Payette-Flynn’s mother, Julie Payette, as an aviator and astronaut. The Royal Crown symbolizes Ms. Payette’s viceregal office and service to all Canadians.
Added to the shield as a temporary difference and set with laurel (laurier in French) leaves, the label indicates that Laurier Payette-Flynn is the heraldic heir of his mother.
Original concept of Claire Boudreau, Chief Herald of Canada, assisted by the heralds of the Canadian Heraldic Authority.
