Motto : 'FLOREAT INDUSTRIA' - May industry flourish Origin/meaning The arms were officially granted on May 20, 1960, the supporters on October 10, 1967. The steam engine recalls the Stockton and Darlington Railway's first steam engine "Locomotion", which dates from 1825. The St. Cuthbert's cross commemorates the legend of the monks of Lindisfarne fleeing the Danish invaders, who carried with them the body of the Saint and eventually came to Darlington. On the spot where the body lay an early Saxon Church was built, hence the dedication of the parish church. The mace is a symbol of civic government and the two lions are derived from the arms of the See of Durham and hence link also with the arms of the Durham County Council . The supporters commemorate the visit to the town of HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on 19th October 1967, the lion being a royal emblem. The wyvern refers to the legend of the slaying of the "Sockburn Worm" by Sir John Conyers. The Manor of Sockburn lies a few miles south east of Darlington, on the River Tees. The estates were granted to the Conyers family by the King soon after the Norman Conquest, in recognition of the brave deed. A condition attached to the gift is that the first time a new Bishop of Durham enters the diocese he must be presented with the falchion as he crosses Croft Bridge.
