The design symbolises the origin and name of the town. The crowned boar represents the King’s Swine, with the Saxon crown also denoting the age of the town. The placement of the boar on a blue field represents it fording a river to complete the allusion to the towns name. Blue is the sporting colour of the town whilst boars have often been used in civic heraldry.
