What's in a name?
The word Saskatchewan is derived from the Cree name for the Saskatchewan River, which was Kisiskatchewanisipi or "swift flowing river." Source: Canadian Global Almanac
This coat of arms was granted soon after Saskatchewan became a province on September 1, 1905 (Aug. 25, 1906, with supporters and crest granted in 1986).
The garbs of wheat, along with the green field, represents agriculture, which has long been the main industry of the province.
The lions, in the chief and supporting the shield, represents the British heritage of many of the people of Saskatchewan (and is the same as the lions in the chief of other Canadian provinces (N.B., PEI, and the fess of Quebec) and supporting the Canadian and British arms). The deer (as the other supporter) is abundant in Saskatchewan. Both supporters wear traditional First Nations sashes as collars, to show the contribution of the Cree and Blackfoot people to the province; that of the lion bears a pendant with a maple leaf (representing Canada), while that of the stag bears a pendant with a tiger lily (the provincial flower of Saskatchewan).
The motto reads 'MULTIS E GENTIBUS VIRES' meaning "From many peoples strength".
