LONGBRIDGE DEVERILL PARISH COUNCIL

Unitary Authority : Wiltshire

Coat of arms (crest) of Longbridge Deverill

Official blazon

Per chevron Vert and Azure on a Chevron embattled the lower edge enarched between in chief two Wyverns passant reguardant that on the sinister contourny the tails terminating in a point and in base an Escallop Or a Sword erect enclosed by a pair of Keys in saltire wards upwards and outwards Sable.

Mooto : Thyne be the Glory

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on April 29, 2015.

The Wyverns are for Wessex, of which Wiltshire was the central part with its green fields and downs. The chevron is a long bridge and the emblem on it the symbol of Saints Peter and Paul, to whom the Parish church is dedicated, while the blue stands for the River Deverill that runs through the village and under the bridge with the shell being a token of pilgrimage and thus of all personal spiritual endeavour (and also to be found within the decoration in the church as a detail in the Brocklebank arms).

The motto is a reference to the Thyne family.
