Vintage Metal ROAD SIGN. Of DARLINGTON Borough, Co DURHAM. This Coat of Arms for this original Railway Town is an extremely Rare survivor. It would most probably have been on a lamppost or wall of the city or council building. The arms were officially granted in 1974. The arms contain most of the components from the old councils’ arms. The blue and red colours of the field come from the arms of the Borough and Rural District respectively. Saint Cuthbert’s cross recalls the legend of the monks of Lindisfarne, fleeing the Vikings. They brought the relics of Saint Cuthbert with them, and on the spot where the body lay Saint Cuthbert’s church was built. Darlington is a market town, hence the inclusion of a garb and a bull’s head. The bull represents “Comet”, a famous shorthorn bull bred by the pioneering Colling brothers. The chevron with blue wave shows the River Tees which flows through the district. The chief shows “Locomotion”, the first locomotive of the first passenger railway in the World, The Stockton and Darlington. Condition is as per photos.
