At each side are Oak Leafs representing the Royal Forest of Galtres in which, in the Middle Ages, Haxby was located. At the top on a Green field, representing the surrounding natural environment of the town including Haxby Moor, is the White Rose of York. With at either side an Eagle, alluding to Haxby's Roman heritage and a Cross alluding to its Viking heritage.
