Ther Arms of Romilly Squire of Rubislaw

Following Scottish heraldic tradition, these arms are based on the oldest recorded arms associated with the name. These are variously given in the old armorials as Or, on a chief Sable a mullet (occasionally two mullets) Argent. As a difference, a gold swan’s head and neck (a very common charge in Squire heraldry) was placed between the mullets and the tincture of the mullets was changed to Or . The main charge on the shield is a rose which relates to the grantee’s Yorkshire origins.

The York rose is, of course, white but, as heraldic convention prohibits ‘metal on metal’, it was decided that the rose should be black. The gold swan crest charged with a black rose echoes the iconography of the shield. The motto, which translates as “NATURE’S ART IS BETTER”, refers to the grantee’s career as a professional artist.


The original arms were granted to the registrant's late father, Geoffrey Squire.
