Aberdeenshire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Aberdeenshire.

The arms were granted in 1890. The four quarters show the four main parts of the County. The three garbs is for Buchan, the bend and cross crosslets for Mar, the checky bar and crowns for Garioch and the three boars heads for Gordon.

The IBD Home Page and each IBD County Page has or will have (where possible) the relevant Coat of Arms. This is made possible thanks to a fantastic heraldry website called the International Civic Heraldry Website. Sometimes a description is not given due to lack of information, so if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. You may visit this superb site by using the link below.
