Redditch United Logo

Post  Redditch Events on Mon Jan 17, 2011 8:32 am

Does anyone know who designed it, when it was introduced, or the history behind it?

After running through a few albums, I noticed that it appears to be a fairly new fixture.

Arms were granted to Redditch Urban District Council by Letters Patent dated 15th December 1943. They could be blazoned:

Argent on a Cross engrailed Vert a Needle point downwards of the field eyed and ensigned with an Ancient Crown Or in the first quarter a Salmon-Fly in bend proper.

Crest

In front of a demi-Cogwheel thereon a Swift rising proper an Arrow fesswise Or

Motto

REDDITE DEO (Render to God/Redditch for God)

Redditch became a Borough on the 15th May 1980. New Letters Patent were issued dated 2nd March 1984 which exemplified the transfer of the Arms of the former Urban District Council to the new Borough. The Crest was altered slightly.

The Swift, very simply, became a Kingfisher. This was done at the request of the new Borough and reflected the growing association between Redditch and the most attractive of birds.

Redditch has grown from a hamlet near the Cistercian Abbey of Bordesley. The white of the shield is taken from the monks' habit. The Cross is a reference to St Stephen, patron of both the Abbey and the Parish Church. The green of the Cross commemorates Feckenham Forest. The Borough stands within this former Forest. The Ancient Crown alludes to King John who made the forest "Royal", and to his grandmother the Empress Maud who founded the Abbey in 1138. The needle and the salmon-fly mark the principal industries. The Crest refers also to important industries by showing a demi-cogwheel. The arrow is an obvious allusion to the River Arrow, which flows through Redditch. It is also a symbol of the speed and directness of modern road and air transport.

The Wreath that covers the join between Crest and Helm is of six twists of silk. White alternating with green. The Mantling that hangs down from the Wreath is green on top and white underneath. (The Mangling was originally used to keep the sun off the neck of the knight wearing the helm, or helmet.)

The motto is a quotation from Mark Chapter XII, Verse 17. "Reddite quae sunt Caesaris, Caesari; et quae Dei sunt, Deo" which means "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's".

The Arrow is for River Arrow and the demi Cog Wheel Is the Water wheel at Forge mill depicting the river flowing through the water wheel.
P.s the swift looked crap, the Kingfisher looks much better.
