coat of arms

Westfield House's new Coat of Arms.

Westfield House at Cambridge University, the theological institute of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of England, has recently been granted its own Coat of Arms by the Crown.

The crest features a white horse in reference to the White Horse Inn, a former Cambridge pub where the works of Martin Luther were read and discussed. The arms features a cross as its central motif; a book which alludes to Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions, and a Luther rose. The motto is Fidelis et verax - Latin for “faithful and true.”

I think it's rather smashing ....
