Official blazon

Arms : Or on a Chevron Gules a Stafford Knot of the first on a Chief Azure a Lion passant guardant of the field.
Crest : Issuant out of a Mural Crown proper a Stafford Knot Or.
Supporters : On the dexter side a Lion reguardant Gules crowned with a Ducal Coronet Or and on the sinister side a Gryphon reguardant Or.


The arms were officially granted on January 31, 1931.

All the devices on the arms come from arms of various Earls of Stafford. The red chevron on gold was the arms of the de Staffords. It is charged with the family's famous Stafford knot badge (see Stafford). The supporters are those of the de Staffords also, with the heads turned "reguardant" for heraldic difference.

The motto is "The Knot Unites".
