Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on November 4, 1869.

The three stags' heads on the chevron are from the arms of the Earls of Derby and the three mural crowns from the arms of the Bootle family. The fleurs-de-lis, with colour reversed, are found in the arms of the Linacres of Yorkshire.

The use of a lighthouse as a crest is rare, and indicates the borough's position at the mouth of the River Mersey.
