Coat of Arms

Although the Zombie Preparedness Organization of Canada’s coat of arms is not registered with the Canadian Heraldic Authority it was designed with the rules of the authority in mind.  It is the official emblem of ZPOC (Trade Mark pending).

Description

ZPOC coat of armsThe shield is in the shape of a headstone with the Canadian crown on top.  At the top of the shield are two maple leafs flanking a fleur de lis representing both english and french speaking people of Canada.  The main part of the shield is separated from the top with three stripes, red, white and black. These are the official colours of ZPOC. In the centre of the shield is a zombie silhouette crossed by a red C7 and sword. The C7 is the main assault rifle of the Canadian Forces. This represents the beginning of the fight against the undead when we will have all of our technology available to us. While the sword is representative of the battle to survive when we will have to resort to less modern technologies. In front of the crossed rifle and sword is a black circle with a star in it’s centre and two feathers hanging off of it. This is symbolic of a drum used by the First Nations of Canada. The Star is a stylized North Star. At the bottom of the shield the area between the banner and the shield is filled with maple leaves. The banner states the motto of ZPOC ‘Are you prepared?’

 

The arms were designed to symbolize the fact that all Canadians will have to work together to survive a zombie apocalypse or any other disaster that may befall them.
