Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on ?

The green background represents the considerable area of rural land and amenities still left in the district. The triple-knotted ribbon suggests the union of the three parishes in terms of a distinctive local industry and the road pattern in the centre of the area. The lozenges and flames indicate the coal-mines and foundries, while the bee, for Bedworth, represents an industrious community in general.

The crest indicates the union of Exhall parish (the hind and arrow of St. Giles) and of Bulkington parish (the scallop shell of St. James) with Bedworth. The mural crown symbolising the whole district. The liveries of the wreath and decorative mantling are red and white, the colours of Warwickshire County Council and the Chamberlaine family.

The Bedworth bee from the shield is placed on a green triangle suggesting the tripartite area, against a circular wreath of the livery colours. Literature:
