The Arms of John Michael Berry

The cross moline and the four hurts allude to the armiger’s Berry and Molyneux Lancashire forebears, while the Azure and Or are the colours of St Bede’s College, Manchester where he was educated, and taught for a third of a century. The Bordure alludes to Ampleforth Abbey of which he is an oblate — black for Benedictines and red for the community’s canonised martyr, St Alban Roe.

The Badge of John Michael Berry

The chief, required for difference, is in part a tribute to Robert Noel, Lancaster Herald, whose expertise, enthusiasm, wit and humour, made the process leading to the grant such a pleasure.

The raven on the crest is the principle of life in Inuit culture, while in Western culture it is an emblem of St Benedict, patron saint of Europe.

The inclusion of the bee in the badge recalls St Bede’s College shield, the crest of the City of Manchester, where Mr Berry worked, charges on the shield of the City of Salford where he lives, and aspects of the heraldic emblem of the Diocese of Salford. It also cantingly invokes the initial of his surname.
