Coat of Arms (old)

The arms shown here depict the oldest recorded version, in which the field of the Dyers in sinister (the half with the chevron) is Argent (silver in colour), whereas the recently matriculated version shows it as Or (gold or yellow in colour) to match that of the Bonnetmakers’ original arms.

The matriculated version also shows the crest above the shield, being the Golden Fleece, together with the punning motto “We Dye to Live”.  The earlier arms of both Bonnetmakers and the Dyers were, for some reason, never matriculated in the Lyon Register and therefore, the new arms were designed and matriculated in 2011.
