The University of the West Indies Coat of Arms
This is the official Coat of Arms symbol of the four Campus Universities of the West Indies. It appears on official stationary, posters, certificates and degrees, memorabilia, on the academic dress of senior university officials, and is the most visible symbol of the University.
One of the earliest functions of the Provisional Council of the University College of the West Indies (UCWI) was to decide on a Coat of Arms for the fledgling institution. The armorial bearings for UCWI were designed by Mr. H Ellis Tomlinson of Thornton-le-Fyfe in Lancashire for the sum of 120 Guineas. In a letter dated February 7, 1947 from Tomlinson to Walter Adams of the Colonial Office, Tomlinson outlined a proposal with notes on possible designs for the College's armorial bearing, parts of which were incorporated in the final approved design. The initial design called for seven crowns to represent the three islands Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad), two island groups (Leewards and Windwards) and two mainland colonies (British Guiana and British Honduras) to be served by UCWI.
