Cumbria Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Cumbria

The Cumbria coat of arms was granted in 1974. The motto: - Ad Montes Oculos Levavi - is taken from the latin version of the Psalms, Psalm 121; and is translated - I shall lift up mine eyes unto the hills - which was thought apt, as the Lake District Fells can be seen from all parts of the new County.

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.
