What does this mean?

  • A field of acorns on a gold shield represents Wokingham as a forest town
  • An ermine chevron indicates the Royal House
  • A Tudor rose is part of the badge of Queen Elizabeth I and our present Queen
  • The Saxon crown reflects the Saxon origin of the district
  • A Berkshire stag supporting a bishop’s crozier denotes ownership of the town by the Bishop of Salisbury until 1574, when it became a Royal town.
  • The Motto translates as: "from the acorn, the oak"

The Arms were granted to the former Borough of Wokingham in 1953, Coronation Year. At a special court held at Windsor Castle on 16 April 1975, Queen Elizabeth II authorised by Order of Council that the Armorial Bearings were to be “lawfully borne and used” by Wokingham Town Council.

The Coat of Arms is granted to the Town Council by the College of Heralds. It may not be reproduced by any other person or organisation without the specific written permission of the Town Council. Please contact the Town Clerk for further information.
