Gloucestershire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Gloucestershire

The three chevronells are taken from the ancient Coat of Clare, Earls of Gloucester. The golden fleeces are indicative of the wool industry. The motto - Prorsum Semper - means ever forward and is taken from the arms of the Allen family.

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.
