Arms (crest) of Goole

Official blazon

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.
Motto: Advance.


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
