Arms (crest) of Bingley

Official blazon

Arms : Per chevron Argent and Vert in chief two Trefoils slipped Sable and in base a Fleece Or on a Chief Gules a Millrind Gold between two Roses Argent barbed and seeded proper.

The arms were officially granted on September 10, 1956.

The black trefoils derive from the arms of the Bingley family, previously used by the UDC. The fleece and millrind allude to the woollen and engineering industries and the white roses are for Yorkshire.

The muzzled bear is also from the crest of the Bingley family, differenced by the addition of a Saxon crown.
