Long Description:
From the (visit link) website:-
Arms were granted to Redditch Urban District Council by Letters Patent dated 15th December 1943.
Motto:- REDDITE DEO (Render to God/Redditch for God)

Redditch became a Borough on the 15th May 1980. New Letters Patent were issued dated 2nd March 1984 which exemplified the transfer of the Arms of the former Urban District Council to the new Borough. The Crest was altered slightly.

The Swift, very simply, became a Kingfisher. This was done at the request of the new Borough and reflected the growing association between Redditch and the most attractive of birds.
