The Airms o Canadae (an aa kent as the Ryal Coat o Airms o Canadae[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] or formally as the Airms o His/Her Majesty in Richt o Canadae)[8] is, syne 1921, the offeecial coat o airms o the Canadian monarch, an thus an aa o Canadae. It is closely modelled efter the ryal coat o airms o the Unitit Kinrick wi distinctive Canadian elements replacin or addit tae those derived frae the Breetish.

The maple leaves in the shield, blazoned "proper", wur oreeginally drawn vert (green) but wur redrawn gules (reid) in 1957. A circlet o the Order o Canadae wis addit tae the airms for limited uise in 1987. The shield design forms the Royal Standard of Canada, an the shield is foond on the Canadian Red Ensign. The Banner o the Govrenor General o Canadae, which umwhile uised the shield ower the Union Banner, nou uises the crest o the airms on a blue field.
