Causeway Coast & Glens New Coat Of Arms Criticised

1 Mins read
BT Coleraine

Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this afternoon Ald. Norman Hillis said he was less than enthusiastic about the new design.

“To say that I am underwhelmed would be putting it mildly.

Bearing in mind that the new crest needs to reflect the history and culture of the four former council areas must have posed a problem to those on the sub committee tasked with getting a new Borough crest.

I was disappointed with the colouring as it was predominantly blue and yellow and the lack of to my mind essential elements such as a harp, the shamrock and the red hand of Ulster.

I also felt that the world famous Giants Causeway stones received minimal recognition.”

Ald. Norman Hillis went on to say that “The salmon is depicted bolt up right and we we have two anchors, one of which is upside down.

The only bit I really liked was the new motto. Having said all that, apparently it is the College of arms in London who have the last say, not apparently the council.

I did criticise the proposed design at the committee but the majority seemed happy so doubtless we will have to live with it.”
