Leicestershire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for the Leicestershire

The arms were granted on 25 January 1930. The supporters represent the two main industries of the County for many centuries, a bull for grazing and a ram for the wool production. The bull wears a Ducal Crown, as several Earls of Leicester were also Dukes of Lancaster. The fox represents the fox hunting which started in the area in 1690.

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.
