The Badge honours the city of Montréal, the ship's namesake city. The river depicted is St. Lawrence and the mountain is Mount Royal, so named by Jacques Cartier in 1535. The dominant fleur-de-lis recognizes the city's role as the leading metropolis of the province of Quebec, just as the maple leaves attest to the city's national importance as well as the ship's status as a Canadian ship of war.
