Canadian Emblem of the Coronation of King Charles III
The Royal Monogram CIIIR of His Majesty The King Or environed by thirteen triangles their apexes inwards their bases enarched Vert, all ensigned by the Royal Crown proper;
The Royal Crown and the Royal Monogram CIIIR (“Charles III Rex”, the latter word meaning “king” in Latin) are personal emblems of The King. The triangles evoke a string of pennants, appropriate for a celebratory occasion. Their number represents the thirteen provinces and territories of Canada. Green is a colour associated with the environment, a longstanding interest of His Majesty’s, and it also conveys the idea of growth and hope. Their arrangement in a circle symbolizes inclusion. The white spaces form pathways leading to a central gathering place; they also create the image of a sunburst, symbolic of new ideas and innovation.
