Coat of arms (crest) of New Windsor

Official blazon

Per fesse Argent and Vert a Stag's Head caboshed of the first in chief between the attires Sable an Escutcheon of France Modern and England quarterly in base a Castle Wall with three Towers also Argent in the central tower a open Port with Portcullis raised Or.


Arms entered (without tinctures) at the Visitation of 1532; Confirmed with tinctures at the Visitation of 1566; certified painting supplied by Richmond Herald in 1947

The castle is, of course, a reference to Windsor's famous royal fortress, and the stag's head recalls that the Windsor Great Park around the town formed a hunting ground for the Norman kings. The shield depicts the old 1405-1603 Royal Arms and is appropriate as New Windsor is a Royal Borough.
