Salt Coat of Arms - Saltaire


The Salt Coat of Arms

The Salt family coat of arms consists of 2 stars above an upside down chevron. Below the chevron is an ostrich holding a horseshoe in its beak. Apparently the ostrich represents willing obedience and serenity and the horseshoe represents good luck and protection.

This is above the college building in Victoria Road. The building was originally the dining hall for the workers at Salts Mill. It was the first building to be built after the mill was completed.
