Flintshire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Flintshire

The arms were granted on May 12, 1938. The cross and the birds are taken from the arms of Edwin King of Tegeingl, a former Kingdom that covered most of the present County. He founded one of the fifteen Royal tribes of North Wales.

The crest is the Welsh dragon carrying a white feather. This is the badge of the Prices of Wales, and adopted as a symbol of Wales by Henry VII. The arms were restored in 1996 when the county was re-created.

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.
