County Offaly Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for County Offaly.

The arms were granted on 31st August, 1983. The principal colours used - green, white and gold - are the sporting colours of the County. The point in base sable is intended to represent the bogland of the County with a sprig of Andromeda polifolia. The motto Esto Fidelis means 'The Faithful County' - it would be rendered: Be You Faithful (to the County and its traditions).

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.
