County Donegal Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for County Donegal

The arms are symbolical of both the nature of the County and its history. The wavy bars represent the green hills and golden strands and, by inference, the surrounding sea, while the small shield in the centre, with its royal ermine, stands for the ancient Kingdom of Aileach and, with the cross of the O'Donnells, signifies the two components of the County - Inishowen and Tir Chonaill.

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.
