The Sale Coat of Arms


The Sale Coat of Arms were granted on 23 September 1920. The wheatsheaves are from the arms of the Cheshire County Council and the lozenges are from the arms of the Massey family of Sale. The Moorcock refers to the district of Sale Moor. The unicorn represents the Ashton-on-Mersey district of Sale, and the badger is a ‘punning allusion’ to Brooklands. Each beast wears a distinctive collar of sallow twigs, in reference to the origin of the name of the Borough. which is also echoed in the motto.
