These handsome lapel pins featuring the armorial bearings of the Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants are now available to members for $15.00, which includes shipping & handling.
The symbolism for the arms is as follows:
Arms The red and white are the colours of Canada. The ship represents the English ship Mayflower which transported Pilgrims to New England in 1620. The scallop shells are the traditional symbol of Pilgrims.
Crest The Canada jay represents the Canadian identity of the Society. The boulder represents Plymouth Rock, the traditional landing spot in Massachusetts of the Pilgrims from England in 1620.
Motto While being a pun on the name Mayflower, the motto also evokes a hope of growth of the Society.
