Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on December 9, 1954.

The shield shows three pink parrot tulips. Holland is famous for bulb growing. The crest is divided in two. The black portion has a gold crown on black. This is taken from the arms of Boston. The blue section bears a silver mitre.

The crest has a coronet made from acorns from which rises a distinctive fleur de lys burgeonée. Again this reminds us of bulb growing. The black and gold livery colours of Boston, the County town are used.

The supporters are herons, like the crest of Kesteven County Council.
