Canadian Emblem of The Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II
The Royal Monogram EIIR of Her Majesty The Queen Or above the numeral 70 Argent within two voided septafoils reversed, the interior one set with seven demi-maple leaves Gules issuant from its arches and the exterior one set with seven pearls Argent between its arches, all ensigned by the Royal Crown proper;
The Royal Monogram EIIR and the Royal Crown are personal emblems of The Queen. The light grey colour of the number 70 alludes to platinum. The seven-sided figures, maple leaves and pearls celebrate the seven decades of Her Majesty’s reign. The rounded edges of the figures resemble the petals of a flower, symbolizing a celebration. The shape also evokes a cake, often associated with festive occasions. The maple leaves are a reference to Canada and convey the idea of fireworks.
