Coat of arms
Our corporate identity and flag are based on the coat of arms granted to the Council in 1992. The coat of arms represents the county’s history and traditions. It is used only for formal and ceremonial purposes, such as long service awards, the Leader’s and Chairman’s stationery and commemorative items. It is also used on county border road signs and literature produced by Regulatory Services for marriage and citizenship ceremonies in Hampshire.
The use of the coat of arms must be authorised by Corporate Communications and, unless you have prior agreement from Corporate Communications, it must always be used with the corporate logo.
There are both single-colour and full-colour versions of the coat of arms. If you are using the single-colour coat of arms on a dark background, please note that the top half of the shield remains dark.
Copies of our Hampshire County Council coat of arms leaflet are available from the Corporate Communications Team.
