NORFOLK AND NORWICH UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
Quarterly Gules and Or on a Dance Ermine between two Lions passant guardant crowned and counterchanged three Pot Marigold Flowers (Calendula officinalis) proper.
The arms were granted in 1971.
The ‘Dance’ in the arms is derived from those of the original hospital’s founder, William Fellowes, who bore: Azure a Fess dancetty Ermine between three Lions’ Heads erased Or, murally crowned Azure.
The Pot Marigold flowers were suggested by the then Richmond Herald, Mr J P Brooke-Little in response to a request for a floral symbol of healing to be placed on the fess. It was chosen as it was used medicinally by herbalists and as it resembles the sun which is itself a symbol of health and healing.
