Swansea Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Swansea

The blue and white barry wavy part of the field shows that Swansea is a seaport. The castle is for the City's medieval fortifications - part of the castle still remains. The lion on the small shield is for the de Braos family. The crest has the osprey long associated with Swansea, and also found in West Glamorgan County Council's arms. The lion supporter is again derived from the de Braos arms, while the red dragon shows that the City is in Wales.

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.
