The Arms of Emanuel
                                              Kingsley

The crown (a kingly symbol) above an owl (a symbol of the forest) is a pun on the armiger's surname Kingsley, which roughly means "from the king's wood, glade or meadow," and derives from the Old English words Cyning (King) and leah (woodland clearing). It also represents the sovereignty of knowledge. Furthermore, the owl, as a symbol of academic wisdom, represents the armiger's profession as an educator and researcher; his passion for knowledge and its constant pursuit; and his direct descent from a United Empire Loyalist founder of the University of New Brunswick, Canada's oldest English-language university. The unicorn horn and the narwhal tusk may look identical, but only true knowledge (represented by the owl) can tell them apart.

Continuing the theme of the shield, the crest is an allegory of superstition and fantasy being reined in by reason and knowledge. Once contextualized, the unicorn alludes to Mr. Kingsley's love of medievalism, history, romanticism, creativity, and imagination. The book also symbolizes the armiger's vocation as an educator and researcher. As well, the unicorn as a symbol of medicine alludes to the armiger's husband as an emergency room nurse; that the unicorn is chained to a book is a reference to Western medicine being grounded in science and evidence.

The Motto, "Think Freely", affirms Mr. Kingsley's belief in steadfastly maintaining and defending his own convictions despite pressure to blindly conform to orthodoxies he might disagree with.
