      "The Dingle" Tower ... Sir Sandford Flemin...

      "This tower was erected to keep in the grateful memory of a loyal people the grant by Great Britain of representative government in Nova Scotia and in the other provinces of Canada, as well as in the dominions beyond the seas. The foundation stone was laid by Duncan Cameron Fraser Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia on the second day of October, nineteen hundred and eight - the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the first meeting of the General Assembly in Nova Scotia. This assembly - the first elected legislative body in Canada-was constituted in accordance with the settled colonial policy of Great Britain and in obedience to the terms of the commissions issued to the early Governors of Nova Scotia and has met annually in Halifax during the intervening century and a half. Erected by the Canadian Club of Halifax aided by contributions from other Canadian clubs and from governments, municipalities, corporations and individuals throughout the empire. The first gift being the park of one hundred acres in which this tower stands, from Sir Sandford Fleming. K•C•M•G• "Nisi Dominus Frustra""

      "Built between 1908 and 1912 at the suggestion of Sir Sandford Fleming, this tower commemorates the 150th anniversary of the first representative government in Canada. From the High Victorian character of its massive rusticated shaft to the Edwardian Classicism of its more delicate superstructure, the tower's architecture was meant to remind future generations of Canada's burgeoning independence, but also of past and continued ties to Britain. The Memorial Tower's prominent location is reflective of an era when British imperialism was considered an integral part of Canadian nationalism." - Parks Canada.

      "The coat of arms of New Zealand (Māori: Te Tohu Pakanga o Aotearoa) is the heraldic symbol representing the South Pacific island country of New Zealand. Its design reflects New Zealand's history as a bicultural nation, with a European female figure on one side and a Māori rangatira (chief) on the other. The symbols on the central shield represent New Zealand's trade, agriculture and industry, and a Crown represents New Zealand's status as a constitutional monarchy. The initial coat of arms was granted by warrant of King George V on 26 August 1911, and the current version was granted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1956. While the use of the coat of arms is restricted to the New Zealand Government, the symbol enjoys wide use on state decorations; it appears on the uniform of the police and is on the cover of the national passport." - Wikipedia
