NEW YORK ST. GEORGE'S SOCIETY

Coat of arms (crest) of New York St. George's Society

Official blazon

Arms :

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted in 1999 by the College of Arms, London.

The shield contains a red cross on a white field, the Cross of St. George and flag of England. For difference, there are demi-garbs of wheat.

New York is represented by the crest: a hemisphere with an American eagle, which is a direct quote from the arms of New York City, surrounded by a circlet of mullets (or American) stars.

The supporters are St. George and a Lenape Indian with trade goods at his feet. The Lenapes hunted in the environs of Manhattan when the first European settlers arrived there. The achievement rests on a special compartment, a stone wall, which is an allusion to the wall at Wall Street.
