Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on ?

The background of gold and blue chequers, common to the arms of the Borough of Stamford and the Borough of Grantham , are from the arms of the great Norman family of de Warenne, who held both manors. The green of the chevron, is like the background of the device of the West Kesteven RDC and the two sheaves of wheat, representing agriculture, are also from this device and the arms of the South Kesteven RDC.

The gold knot, the badge of the Wakes, is taken from the arms of the Bourne UDC, of which they were lords in medieval times. At the head of the shield is one of the Royal Lions of England, which formed part of the arms of Stamford.
