Miramichi Herald of Arms is the title of one of the officers of arms at the Canadian Heraldic Authority in Ottawa. The office was created in 2003. Like the other heralds at the Authority, the name is derived from the Canadian river. The design of the badge of office of Miramichi Herald of Arms was assigned in 15 June 2005. The Mi’kmaq star in the badge refers to the name Miramichi, which means "Land of the Mi’kmaq", and honours the first inhabitants of New Brunswick. The white, yellow, red, and black signify the four sacred directions and human races. The double lines around the star produce the adapted design for use by Miramichi Herald and also recall the porcupine quill decoration used by the Mi’kmaq nation.
