Assiniboine Herald of Arms (French: Héraut Assiniboine) is the title of one of the officers of arms at the Canadian Heraldic Authority in Ottawa. Like the other heralds at the Authority, the name is derived from the Canadian river of the same name. The design of the badge of office of Assiniboine Herald of Arms is based on the meaning of the word "Assiniboine." This is an Ojibway term describing the practice of boiling food by dropping heated rocks into water. The black circle represents the rim of a pot, looking from the top down. The red illustrates the heat from the rocks in the pot.
