the crest of north dumfries township

Township CrestThe crest of the Township of North Dumfries was designed to represent three distinct characteristics of our community:

Nature, with the beaver and the graphic representation of wetlands;

Industry, with the gears and cogs and the thistle representing the Village of Ayr where, until recently, most industry in the township was located; and

Agriculture, with the water wheel and the plow representing the traditional agrarian focus of the community.

Each of these elements are presented as being equal in importance, yet still interdependent on each other forming a coherent whole.
