Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on

Of the three amalgamating authorities, only Loughborough had a coat of arms, and this was based upon a design incorporating the heraldic devices of families who had owned the old Manors of Loughborough and Barrow.

The new Borough of Charnwood has therefore continued to use the Loughborough Coat of Arms
