Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee 2022 marks the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 70th anniversary of her accession to the Throne. She is Canada's longest reigning Sovereign and the first to celebrate a platinum jubilee. ​

About the Emblem

The Royal Cypher of Her Majesty The Queen, EIIR, appears at

the centre of the emblem. It makes a personal reference to

the Queen as a way of marking this significant anniversary

of her reign. Below the Royal Cypher is the number 70,

depicted in silver white to allude to the rare and precious

metal platinum, the name of a jubilee marking 70 years.

These elements are framed by a 7-sided shape, along with 7 maple leaves and 7 pearls to mark the 7 decades of Her Majesty’s reign. Depicted in red and white, the national colours of Canada, these elements make several allusions to the idea of celebration. The Royal Crown appears at the top of the emblem.

The emblem was designed and painted by Cathy Bursey–Sabourin, Fraser Herald at the Canadian Heraldic Authority.
