The green field refers to the rural nature of the village, whilst the golden-orange recalls the historic iron industry and the mineral colour of many local steams. The golden-orange section forms a ‘W’ for the villages initial as well as symbolising the hills, steep valleys and meandering streams in the areas. Between the ‘W’ are three estoile stars, derived from the arms of the Courthope family who owned the Whiligh Estate that covered much of Wadhurst. It was from this estate that the oak was sourced for the hammer beam roof of Westminster Hall.
