Christchurch Got A Coat Of Arms – 21st February 1949

On 21 February 1949, the C.C.C. adopted the newly created design for Christchurch’s Coat of Arms.

Like all other Coat of Arms, every single item means something. At a quick glance at ours, it tells us that Christchurch is a Church of England founded city, it’s a city of the common man and its livelihood is dairy/meat and crops. It even acknowledges our First Four Ships…these are just a few examples of the great story represented by our Coat of Arms.
