Arms of British Dietetic Association

Official blazon

Arms : Azure, an ibex proper, armed and unguled Or, perched upon the point of a cornucopia gold.
Crest: On a wreath of the colours, An ibex's head erased proper, gorged with a chain Or, pendent therefrom an escutcheon azure charged with a cornu­copia Or.


The arms were officially granted on June 10, 1958.

The arms depict an Ibex (Mountain Goat) perched upon a Cornucopia. The symbolism was designed to depict 'balance' (the Ibex) in the 'time of plenty' (the Cornucopia). This underlines the philosophy of good nutrition: that, while we enjoy a relative wealth of food and nutrition, we need to balance this according to our needs.
