On the gold chief is a lion passant or leopard, a royal symbol of England. (English lions are usually gold with red tongues and claws; however, the default colours for a heraldic lion on a gold field are red with blue tongue and claws.) The three gold sheaves of wheat, or garbs, represent the province's agriculture; the heraldic sheaf of wheat has become a generalized symbol of the province.
The helmet above the shield is gold and faces left, a symbol of Saskatchewan's co-sovereign status in Confederation. The mantling is in Canada's national colours. The crest is a beaver, Canada's national animal, holding a Western red lily[?], Saskatchewan's provincial flower. The crest is surmounted by a crown, representing royal sovereignty.
Both supporters - a royal lion to the left, and an indigenous white-tailed deer[?] to the right - are wearing collars of First Nations beadwork, from which are suspended the badges of the Order of Saskatchewan. The lion's badge is emblazoned with a maple leaf and the deer's, with a red lily. The supporters stand on a compartment of red lilies.
The motto is Multis e gentibus vires - from many peoples, strength.
The original royal warrant of 1906 blazoned the shield as follows:
The royal proclamation of 1986 blazoned the augmentations as follows:
Canada - Alberta[?] - British Columbia[?] - Manitoba[?] - New Brunswick - Newfoundland and Labrador[?] - Northwest Territories[?] - Nova Scotia - Nunavut - Ontario[?] - Quebec - Prince Edward Island - Yukon[?]
