Coat of arms on Clayhithe bridge
Coat of arms on Clayhithe bridge
These are the arms of Cambridgeshire County Council as it was before 1965, when it was merged with the Isle of Ely. The gold wave on a blue shield represents the river Cam, and the trade brought to the county by it. The many waterways of the Fenlands are also suggested. The distinctive double-tressure is taken from the Royal arms of Scotland, as the Earldom of Cambridge was held by the Scottish crown. The castle in the crest is Cambridge Castle as found in the City Council's arms. The supporters are Great Bustards, now extinct in England -it is claimed that the last of these were in Cambridgeshire. The motto is "Per Undas Per Agros" or "By water and land".
