Hi Bern

Welcome to the Bootle site;

The citation of the Bootle coat of arms is thus;

Blazon: Argent,on a chevron between three fleur-de-lis azure, as many stags heads caboshed, or, on a chief sable, three mural crowns of the field. Helmet of an esquire, of steel unadorned in profile with visor closed.

Crest: On a wreath of the colours, upon a rock, a lighthouse proper.

Motto: Respice, Aspice, Prospice.
(Reflect on the past, consider the present, provide for the future)

The Bootle Coat of Arms consist of three stags heads on a blue chevron, they are from the coat of arms of the Earls of Derby; The three mural crowns on a black background are from the coat of arms of the Bootle family (Melling); the three blue fleur-de-lis, with colour reversed are found in the coat of arms of the Linacres of Yorkshire. The use of a lighthouse as a crest is a rare symbol, which denotes the Borough's location at the mouth of the river Mersey.
