Diamond Jubilee Emblem
The Diamond Jubilee emblem design was inspired by the 2002 Golden Jubilee emblem. It is a symbolic statement of the enduring relationship between Canada and The Crown, as personified by Her Majesty The Queen, Canada's Head of State.
The Royal Cypher is The Queen's monogram below St. Edward's crown. It is used in the insignia of orders, decorations and medals, and on various badges. Beneath the Royal Cypher, a red maple leaf is positioned on one stem and disposed on a diamond. The numeral "60" denotes the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty's reign as Queen of Canada.
Rising up on either side in a wreath formation are a series of maple leaves in graduated tones-from crimson red to brilliant gold to forest green-representing our provinces and territories, as well as the seasonal beauty of Canada.
