The following extracts are from a letter from Lancaster Herald of the College of Arms:
“… The Shield is blue. At the base is a golden Cornucopia, reversed so that its ‘tail’ is uppermost. Perched upon the tail is an Ibex, painted in its natural colours; hooves, horns and beard painted gold, with all four feet together, so that it is balancing upon the Cornucopia as it might balance upon the peak of a mountain …
“The idea lying behind this design is probably fairly obvious; namely the Cornucopia represents plenty, the Ibex balanced thereon represents a state of balance; … Apart from the posture in the design, of course, the Ibex itself (I suggest) suggests abounding health and energy, and a clear-eyed balanced outlook on life.”
