Coat of Arms

By 31/01/2019

By a Royal Warrant passed in Toledo by Isabella I of Castile, Gibraltar was granted its Coat of Arms: “An escutcheon on which the upper two thirds shall be a white field and on the said field set a red castle, and below the said castle, on the other third of the escutcheon, which must be a red field in which there must be a white line between the castle and the said red field, there shall be a golden key which hangs by a chain from the said castle, as are here figured”.

 

ByThe Castle and Key remain the Arms of Gibraltar to this day.
