Dauphin Herald Extraordinary

The badge of office of Dauphin Herald Extraordinary

Dauphin Herald of Arms Extraordinary (Héraut Dauphin extraordinaire in French) is the title of one of the officers of arms at the Canadian Heraldic Authority in Ottawa. Herald Extraordinary is an honorary position reserved for people who have made notable contributions to Canadian heraldry. Like the other heralds at the Authority, the name is derived from the Canadian river of the same name.

The two main components of the badge are a blue heraldic dolphin displayed on a stylization of a Mi'kmaq trade silver brooch of the type made for fur traders in the 17th and 18th centuries and traded to many of the First Nations. The badge is outlined with a wavy band of blue, referring both to the waters of the Rivière Dauphin and more widely to the seas, lakes and rivers of Atlantic Canada.
