Origin/meaning

These arms are not officially granted.

In 1571 Queen Elizabeth founded Jesus College on the petition of Doctor Hugh Price. The arms used are a mystery as they do not resemble any arms borne by families of Price. Though the field is now vert and the stags argent, attired or, both an azure field and argent stags have been used.
