Denbighshire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Denbighshire

The principal feature of Denbighshire's arms is a black lion. The shield is divided into a cross which was anciently associated with Prince Edwin of Tegeingl,an area which covered Rhuddlan, Coleshill and Prestatyn. The dragons represent the red dragon of Wales with the keys held by the Crest's dragon representing the keys to the diocese of St Asaph. The motto, Unwn i Wneud Da - We Unite to do Good - continues the strength and unity reflected in the design of the arms.

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.
