Heraldry, the study of coats of arms, crest, &c. is one of my favourite hobbies. Being a nationalist, I have posted on this site as much Canadian heraldry as I could find (except for personal heraldry, of which there is way too much to fit on my webspace. I'd be too tempted to abate the arms of certain hated politicians anyway).
National Flag, Coat of Arms, and even Tartans.
Provincial and Civic Heraldry, in sections-
The Prairie Provinces
The Atlantic Provinces
The Heraldry Society of Canada, as well as the Toronto and B.C.-Yukon branches.

The Canadian Armorial (CHA grants from 1992 to 1995)
HeraldicAmerica (actually about North American heraldy, not the USA)

The dragon seen in the background is a detail from a woodcut done by my great-grandpa many years ago. If I ever become rich enough to register my own coat of arms, this drake will be the crest.
