City of Caulfield Letters Patent

The City of Caulfield Coat of Arms was granted by letters patent on Sunday 1 May 1977. The original Letters Patent is on display in the Glen Eira Town Hall outside Caulfield Library in the hallway leading to the Clock Tower entrance.

The City of Caulfield Letters Patent was issued by the College of Arms in London. It was created by hand using traditional materials and techniques dating back to the Middle Ages. It is made of vellum, a very fine parchment. The Letters Patent includes detailed designs and descriptions of the Coat of Arms, the Standard (banner) and the Badge. The ensigns (symbols) were painted by a College of Arms artist and the descriptions were transcribed by a professional copyist. The three metal cases attached to the bottom of the document with ribbon contain the original wax seals. The Letters Patent is signed and sealed by the Kings of Arms and a copy of the document has been placed on the College registers.
