Symbolism

The gold colour evokes saffron and India, where Mr. Sagar was born. Red and blue are found on the flags of Canada and Quebec respectively, to where he immigrated. The trident is the attribute of the Hindu deity Shiva and alludes to Mr. Sagar’s faith. For him, the three prongs of the trident represent will, knowledge and action. As a Greco-Roman symbol of the ocean, the trident also stands for his surname, which means “ocean” in Hindi and “sea-spear” in Old English. The sword represents Mr. Sagar’s spouse and her skills and achievements in defending others. The trident and the sword displayed together highlight Mr. Sagar’s respect for the equality between genders and for the strength of a couple as a team. The lotus flower symbolizes purity and honesty. The rising sun alludes to energy and optimism.

Crest

Two tigers’ heads erased, addorsed and conjoined at the necks Or, striped Sable embellished Argent langued Gules, each wearing a coronet of snowflakes Argent and gouttes de larmes;

Symbolism

The tiger is a symbol of protection, thus alluding to Mr. and Mrs. Sagar’s mission of helping children in need. It also represents India through its wildlife. Its two heads embody the dualism that characterizes Mr. Sagar’s life experience, such as his attachment to both India and Canada, to the value he places on a couple working together, and to his support of bilingualism. The snowflakes represent Canada through its northern character, and the drops of water, Quebec, through its many lakes.
