Langara unveils new coat of arms

January 30, 2015

Governor General David Johnston was on hand on Wednesday as Langara College unveiled its new coat of arms. The ceremony was the culmination of a process that began in 2009, when Langara applied to the Canadian Heraldic Authority (CHA) for a grant of armorial bearings. Following consultations with members of the campus community as well as with representatives of the Musqueam First Nation, the college arrived at a design that includes features such as the school's falcon mascot and a bed of river grass, symbolizing that the college is located on unceded Musqueam territory. "In the creation of our Coat of Arms we looked to our roots, our culture, and our values. With our new heraldry we honour the land on which the college resides and we celebrate Langara as a symbolic compass for students, guiding their studies and careers as they discover their pathways to success," said President Lane Trotter.
