The badge shows the arms of Warrington. The symbols are:

Wolf’s head – the arms of Hugh Lampus, 1st Earl of Chester and denotes Warrington’s connection with the County of Chester.

Two wheat sheaves on blue – represent the former Lymm Urban District and Runcorn Rural District which amalgamated to form Warrington Borough.

Central lion – arms of Edmond, 1st earl of Lancaster and represents Warrington’s past connection with Lancashire.

Two red roses – represent the amalgamation of Goldbourne Urban District and Warrington Rural District into Warrington Borough.

Six red horses – the armorial bearings of Pegenas de Villars, first Baron of Warrington representing the old County Borough of Warrington

The right to wear the badge was granted by the council to celebrate the group’s 50th anniversary year.

The badge is worn on the point of our plain royal blue scarf. It is also worn on the left sleeve of the leaders uniform for occasions when not wearing the group scarf.
