Slough Borough Council crest

Did you know?

  • The arms were officially granted in the 1970s when Slough changed from Buckinghamshire to Berkshire.
  • The swan is the symbol for Buckinghamshire and the top of the crest is derived from the arms of Berkshire.
  • The two brick axes on either side of the stag represent the former brick making industry in the borough.
  • The flower in the swan's beak symbolises horticulture - the dianthus 'Mrs Sinkins' was cultivated in Slough.
  • The black chevrons symbolise modern technology and the manufacture of alloys.
  • The large star surrounded by a golden ring represents the planet Uranus, discovered by Herschel.
