Lamp Post, Inverness

The Inverness District Coat of Arms is shown here on an ornate lamp post in the town.

The Crucifix is taken from the first Inverness Burgh seal. Its origin is a seal from a Dominican Friary which was in Inverness from 1233 until the Reformation. All that remains of the Friary is the old burial ground.

The cornucopia (a horn) filled with flowers is taken from the older Inverness Burgh Coat of Arms. The cat is from the Clan Mackintosh Arms and represents the Inverness District while the cinquefoil represents the Aird District. The wavy bar represents both the River Ness and the River Beauly.

The motto, 'Concordia et Fidelitas' is translated as Concord and Fidelity or Harmony and Honesty.
