Full name: Her Majesty's Canadian Ship Malahat
Approximately 130 women and men train in HMCS Malahat, one of 24 Naval Reserve Divisions in major cities across Canada. Malahat trains its part-time sailors to meet Canada's maritime defence objectives in times of peace, crisis or war. Malahat is also an active part of the local community, fundraising for local charities as well as participating in numerous community events.
Motto: "NAVIS EXERCITATIONE PARATA" / "A ship prepared by training"
The green section represents a mountain, and in this instance refers to the Malahat Range on Vancouver Island. The sun, although heraldically described as rising from the base is intended to refer to the sun setting in the west and is derived from a similar device in the Arms on the Province of British Columbia. The blue suggests water or the sea.
