SUFFOLK COAT OF ARMS

Suffolk Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Suffolk

The main charge in the arms is the sun rising over the sea. Suffolk is the most easterly County in England and thus the first to see the sun rise. The sun also refers to a poem by Michael Drayton, written in 1627, and was also used as the badge of Suffolk at the battle of Agincourt. The open crowns and crossed arrows refer to Bury St. Edmunds. The crest features a Viking dragon ship, symbolising the Norse associations of the County.

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.
