Our Coat of Arms


When the College officially applied for a grant of Arms, they had been in use for over eighty years. It had been designed for the boat club in the early 1880s. The designer of the arms combined the ancient arms of the University with that of the Earls of Fitzwilliam. It has since been officially granted and recorded by Her Majesty’s College of Arms and is the only college arms to reference those of the University. Uniquely, the circumstances of its creation meant that the Queen permitted all Fitz students to use the coat of arms.
