NEWINGTON COLLEGE

Country: Australia
Location : Sydney

Coat of arms (crest) of Newington College

Official blazon

Arms : Quarterly Sable and Argent, a Bordure and over all a Cross quarterly, upon the Bordure twelve Escallops, all counter-changed, and upon the Cross an Ancient Lamp Or, enflamed proper, between four Mullets of six points also counter-changed.
Crest : On a Wreath of the Colours, a Wyvern sejant Sable, wings elevated and addorsed Argent, and charged with a Cross Sable.
Motto: 'In Fide Scientiam'.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on August 30, 1962.

The wyvern in the Crest, the cross, and the twelve escallops are taken from the Arms used by the Rev. John Wesley, the escallops also being in the Arms used by Kingswood School, Bath (UK), with which Newington College was associated at its foundation.

The mullets represent the Southern Cross, and refer to the arms of the State of New South Wales. The Lamp of Learning and Truth is self-explanatory for an establishment of learning and religious teaching.
