Civic heraldry of the United Kingdom
Arms : Or, a lymphad, sail set, oars in action, sable, flags flying to the dexter gules; on a chief of the second three swans argent. Sup porters: On either side a Viking supporting in the exterior hand a spear proper.
The arms were officially granted on October 7, 1933.
The ship represents Goole's seafaring interests, past and present. The swans are from the arms of Selby Abbey, which was a considerable landholder in the area before its dissolution.
The Viking supporters refer to the Norse sea-rovers who settled along the River Humber.
The arms as used on a JaJa postcard +/- 1905
