Husky Logo #55

.

I'm moving! I'm moving to the place with the coolest Coat of Arms and the coolest flag. I am moving north. I am moving to the Yukon in Canada!!!!!!





This is what the Yukon government says about the Coat of Arms (emphasis mine):

The Yukon Coat of Arms is a red, blue, gold and white shield surmounted by a malamute (or husky) standing on a mound of snow.

Wavy vertical white and blue stripes represent the Yukon River and the gold-bearing creeks of the Klondike. Red spire-like forms represent the territory's mountains and the gold circles within symbolize mineral resources. At the top of the shield is a cross of St. George in recognition of the early English explorers and a "roundel in vair" as a symbol of the fur trade.


And here's more words from them about the flag:

The Yukon flag has three vertical panels: a green panel on the inner edge, a central panel of white and a blue panel on the outer edge. The Yukon Coat of Arms appears on the central panel framed by two stems of fireweed. The green symbolizes the forests, white signifies snow and the blue represents Yukon's rivers and lakes.

I'm pretty sure Ari would pee on the fireweed. Is that enough to have her forceably evicted from the Yukon?
