County Dublin Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for County Dublin

The arms feature the Viking raven badge. This signifies that Dublin was founded by the Vikings. The raven stands on a hurdle, signifying the origin of Dublin's Irish name 'Baile Átha Cliath' or 'Town of the Hurdle Ford'. The name Dublin comes from An Dubh Linn, or black pond.

The motto can be translated as 'Action according to our word.'

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.
