ROYAL WOOTTON BASSETT (Town Council)

Town in : Wiltshire

Arms (crest) of Royal Wootton Bassett

Official blazon

Arms : Gules a Chevron Argent between in chief two Lozenges and in base a Lion passant guardant Or.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 30, 2011.

The town had long used unofficial Arms consisting of a chevron between three lozenges: the newly granted design adapts this by adding a Royal Lion to reflect the Royal favour accorded in recognition of Wootton Bassett’s role in recent repatriations of fallen servicemen and women.
