The design is an abstract representation of change-ringing, the blue and the gold representing the woollen sally of the bell rope. The order in which tower bells are rung is varied according to the method used. The change in the design below the fess line is an allusion to this feature of change-ringing. Mr Davies is a barrister trained at Gray’s Inn, hence the Griffin Crest. The red cross on the wings represents the City of London of which he is a Freeman, the ancient crown membership of the Heraldry Society and being around the neck alludes to the Society’s motto. The garb tells us that Mr Davies comes from Cheshire and the green and white ribband are the livery colours of Henry Tudor and refer to Welsh ancestry. Note, too, the Welsh motto and pun on the surname in the last two words.
