It’s nice to see the add campaign that BA rolled out in September as well as a return of their re-emblazoned coat of arms (granted by the College of Arms). Interesting, too, that the new slogan is their motto: To Fly, To Serve.

 

A color version of the shield:

Argent between a chief and a bendlet sinister couped Gules, a gyron issuing from the dexter the point in sinister chief Azure.

Dear Joseph,

Many thanks for pointing out the omission of ‘azure’ in the blazon of the arms of British Airways in the new Education Pack as found upon The Heraldry Society’s website.  I shall now flag this up for correction.

Thanks, Joseph. I would never have come up with that blazon; and given only that blazon, I’m not sure I would have come up with the arms of BA.

Nor I, on either count.

Possibly minor quibbles:

* A bendlet couped would I assume be couped at both ends, not just the top, unless specifically stated in the blazon.

 

* Also the couping (is that a valid verb?) would as likely be at right angles to the bend rather than parallel to the chief —e.g. a saltire couped is sometimes shown with the ends cut at right angles to the arms of the saltire (as in my avatar), & sometimes horizontally as the top end of the bendlet in the BA arms.

 

In many cases these points could be just artistic license, but in this case they could IMO make or break the design.

To answer Mike’s comments, how about

Per bend sinister Azure and Argent, a bendlet sinister debased Gules.  Over all a chief Gules fimbrated on the bottom edge Argent

That’s closer to what I would have said; and I think it fixes the problems Michael points out. I wonder, though, whether "fimbriated" is quite right. I think of fimbriation as narrower than the argent edge of the chief shown here. Could one say "bordered" or even "Over all on a chief Argent another Gules"?
