"What is the most important symbol in your coat of arms? ", Rylan, Admiral Collingwood Elementary (Collingwood, ON)

GG Julie Payette: The most obviously that represents me a lot but also that is a first, it has never happened before, there is usually a helmet in the middle of the coat of arms. It's a medieval knight's helmet. But for the first time, instead of a medieval knight's helmet, we put an astronaut's helmet. And for this, I'm very, very proud of, and it's a piece of the coat of arms. But I have to say that in the shield we put the most important symbol, and it's a wing. A wing to allow us to fly, to go higher, the wing of the mothers who keep their chicks, and the wing of the airplanes that allow us to explore and travel. Thank you very, very good question.
