The City of Wetaskiwin’s logo provides a clear, contemporary image that enhances local recognition of a symbol and name in connection with city services, facilities and programs, as well as recognition of funding provided.
In recognition of the City of Wetaskiwin’s 100th birthday in 2006, an official crest was granted by Robert Douglas Watt, Chief Herald of Canada on June 15, 2006.
A description of the City’s crest is as follows:
Arms: The hills refer to the nearby Peace Hills, the site of a peace treaty between Cree and Blackfoot circa 1867. The Cree word Witaskiwinik, meaning “hills of peace”, was adapted for location of the new settlement. The wild roses are a feature of the prairie and are the provincial flower of Alberta. The star at the top represents the North star.
