Arms (crest) of Glossop

Official blazon

Arms : Argent a Rose Gules barbed and seeded proper between three Cross crosslets fitchée and in chief a Mural Crown of the second.
Motto: 'VIRTUS VERITAS LIBERTAS' - Virtue, truth and freedom.


The arms were officially granted on July 7, 1919.

The red rose refers to the Duchy of Lancaster, within which Glossop lies, although geographically in Derbyshire. The mural crown is a symbol of civic government and the cross crosslets are from the arms of the Howard family, Dukes of Norfolk, who held the town and have been closely associated with it ever since.
