Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on November 9, 1922.

The cross and the lions are from the arms of the Dean and Chapter of Durham, the See having owned the Benedictine Priory founded at Lytham by Roger FitzRoger in the reign of Richard I.

The waves represent the sea and the ship is from the device of the former St Annes-on-Sea UDC. The arms on the sail are those of the Clifton family of Lytham Hall.
