Coat Of Arms - Bradford Court

Dieu et mon droit is the motto of the British Monarch in England. It appears on a scroll beneath the shield of the coat of arms of the United Kingdom. The motto refers to the divine right of the Monarch to govern and is said to have first been adopted as the royal motto of England by King Henry V in the 15th century.

This is one of several coat of arms on an old county court building in Manor Row, Bradford. The building itself is quiet plain but the coats of arms really stand out.
