The stag and oak is a symbol associated with the county at least as far back at Michael Drayton’s Battle of Agincourt poem. It is realised here with a red stag being ‘royally attired’ with antlers of twelve points. Thus this helps represents the county’s royal title in addition to the forests and deer herds for which Berkshire is known.
The traditional design was submitted for registration by a collection of representative bodies with support from the county’s Lord Lieutenant.
