The nine-division pattern represents His Honour’s position as the ninth child of his parents. The bauhinia flower represents Hong Kong, the birthplace of His Honour and his wife, Anita. Three such flowers represent their three children. The plum colour is His Honour’s favourite colour.
The prairie crocus flowers, the provincial flower coloured gold here, represent His Honour’s interest in the betterment of all Manitobans. The plum tree alludes to the name “Lee”, which means “plum tree” in Chinese.
The bison is taken from the arms of Manitoba. The qilin is significant to His Honour’s family and Chinese heritage, representing benevolence, goodwill, and good government. The lower body of a fish-tail alludes to his skills in water research and limnology studies.
Refers to the fact that His Honour has always been a community-minded supporter of encouraging the development and growth of all Manitobans.
