West Yorkshire Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for West Yorkshire

The two main charges form the letter W and the rose is the symbol for Yorkshire, thus creating a canting type of arms. The shield is divided into five parts which stand for the five districts, as do the petals of the rose.

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.
