East Kilbride (Scotland), coat of arms (1963)

Official blazon

Per fess, in chief Gules and in base per pale Or and Vert, a cross flory of the Second between two mullets Argent in chief and an oyster catcher bird Proper in base; a chief chequy per pale, dexter, Argent and Azure, sinister, Argent and Sable.

Above the Shield is placed a Burghal coronet Azure masoned Argent, and in an Escrol this Motto "Prosper but Dreid".

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on September 23, 1963.

The checuered chief symbolises the Stewart of Torrance and the Maxwell of Calderwood clans; both have a long connection with the area. The cross is the symbol of Dt. Bride, after whom the town is named.

The two stars are taken from the arms of the Lindsays of Dunrod.

The oystercatcher is the symbol of St. Bride. The colours of the base symbolise wealth (gold) and agriculture (green). The motto "Prosper but Dreid" is derived from the motto of the Earls of Lindsey.
