Arms of Old Aberdeen
Azure; a boughpot Or charged with three salmon in fret,* and containing as many lilies of the garden, the dexter** in bud, the centre full blown,*** and the sinister**** half-blown,***** all Proper, flowered Argent; and on an escrol this Motto: CONCORDIA RES PARVAE CRESCUNT (Through Concord Little Things Increase) [*interlaced, **left-hand as seen by the viewer, ***in bloom, ****right-hand as seen by the viewer, *****withered). The arms were in use in the 15th Century and are still proudly displayed above the door of the Town House, despite Old Aberdeen being absorbed by Aberdeen City in 1891 [many thanks to Gordon Casely of Herald Strategy Ltd. for information]. The relative lack of air pollution in Aberdeen has ensured their excellent condition after nearly 300 years.
