|The Wong Coat of Arms|
Too amazing! The Canadian Heraldic Authority has granted the Wong Association of Ontario its own unique Family symbol and there it is above, as unveiled by The Toronto Star. The 2011 Wongs' National Convention will be held next weekend in Toronto and 1,100 people are expected to gather for the event. The Convention is held every three years, rotating between six cities in Canada and delegates are expected to be handed medallions bearing the Wong Coat of Arms.
The official Wong Coat of Arms takes both Canadian and Chinese mascots - the Panda and Polar Bears together - with a Phoenix rising above them which bears (pardon the pun) the Chinese character for Wong.
