The Calderdale Council Coat of Arms were granted and assigned on 1st November 1977 when Borough status was conferred on the Council.
The Council are very proud of the new Coat of Arms and wanted to create something that would create a talking point. They wanted a visual way to show off the new Coat of Arms. It was decided that a lapel pin badge would be a discrete way to show off the Coat of Arms. They are presented to visitors to the Council and also sold in their information centre.
