Northamptonshire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Northamptonshire

The arms were granted in 1939. The entire achievement is made up of badges of the Yorkist and Lancastrian kings, commemorating the major part the County played in the Wars of the Roses. A rose has been used as a symbol of Northamptonshire since at least 1665. The motto means A Rose, Symbol of Peace.

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.
