Arms (crest) of Haringey

Official blazon

Arms : Sable eight Rays [of Lightning] issuing from the fess point throughout Or.
Crest : On a Wreath of the Colours in front of a demi Sun in Splendour Or a demi Cog Wheel Sable.


The arms were officially granted on 1965.

Instead of using charges from the arms of the three towns that make up Haringey, it was decided to adopt a completely new simple design for the arms.

The shield simply shows a spark. This recalls that the first television broadcast was made from Alexandra Palace in the borough. The crest has a rising sun behind a cogwheel, appropriate for a progressive industrial community.
