Arms of Southern Railway

Official blazon


The company applied for a grant in 1938 but it was not granted until March 1946.

The arms include allusions to London (sword), Dover (leopard’s head), Southampton (rose) and Brighton (dolphin); the barry wavy represents coastal areas and maritime operations.

Crest: a Bulleid-Firth Brown locomotive wheel with a flash alluding to the extensive electrification of the Southern Railway system. The sunburst alludes to the Southern Railway slogan ‘South for Sunshine’.

Supporters: Red dragon (London) and White Horse of Kent (resting a foot on another railway wheel).
