Newfoundland and Labrador's iconic caribou, wild Atlantic salmon and our magnificent land and seascapes form the basis of our CREST. The strong waving provincial flag and the upward angle of both the caribou and salmon head demonstrates our pride. Serving as the primary identification of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement, the crest is used on uniforms, vehicles and in various public relations initiatives. In addition to the caribou and the Atlantic salmon, the crest incorporates key elements of the Newfoundland and Labrador environment. Our prominent rocky landscape is the natural habitat of the caribou. The main colours - orange, blue, black and white - speak to Newfoundland and Labrador's inspiring seascapes and natural beauty, and represent traditional law enforcement colours. The term "Justice" on the crest identifies enforcement officers as part of the justice system within the Department of Justice and Public Safety.
The SHOULDER FLASH was designed to give instant identification to officers in the field. The bold font and colour scheme were inspired by our Crest. The scales of justice signify that law enforcement is an important component of the justice system within the Department of Justice and Public Safety. The provincial brand logo is positioned beneath the primary shape to show provincial identity.
Careful consideration went into developing our crest and shoulder flash so that each reflects our role in the protection of our wildlife and inland fish stocks.
