WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANERS
The arms were officially granted on ?
The tincture of Azure and Argent, as well as the madonna lilies and above all the cross, have long been accepted as symbolic of cleanliness, purity and sacrifice – all being admirable aims for those connected with keeping the environment clean. These tinctures and charges have been arranged in an armorial manner using the age-old device of counter changing (white on blue and blue on white) in order to achieve a bold heraldic design.
The crest retains the basic tinctures of blue and white. The turreted tower represents a city, and the dragon rising from it represents the City of London.
The besom brush held by the dragon obviously indicates cleaning and the stars on its wings represent shining brightness.
