The province of British Columbia boasts nine official symbols:

  1. the provincial flag,
  2. the coat of arms,
  3. Pacific dogwood,
  4. jade,
  5. the Stellar’s jay,
  6. western red cedar,
  7. the spirit bear,
  8. the official tartan
  9. Pacific salmon.

The tartan’s colours incorporate elements from other B.C. symbols — white for the Pacific dogwood, green for the forests, blue for the Pacific Ocean, red for the maple leaf and gold to symbolize the sun and the crown in the provincial flag.

British Columbia’s nine official symbols were chosen to highlight unique elements of the province, but many of the emblems face threats from nature and humans that could jeopardize their future.

In the last 100 days our lives, our businesses and our communities have dramatically changed due to the COVID -19 pandemic. Yet, one thing has really stayed the same  and that is the unwavering commitment of the people of British Columbia to work together, and do everything we can to protect our communities, our seniors and elders and our families.

Rev Richard asked us to think about what our personal SYMBOLS are.
