This is a 2006 mangling of Edmonton's civic crest. The city’s mantra (“Industry, Integrity, and Progress”) was ditched for the first few ridiculous words I could think of. Placing the pioneer’s head in Minerva’s arm seemed like a good idea, and that gave space for a Soviet flag reflecting one of Edmonton’s nicknames, “Redmonton.” Minerva lost her book of wisdom, a wine bottle and handgun was added, a “Flammable” logo replaced a rising sun.
