Another Matriculation for the University of the West of Scotland

Last night, the Lord Lyon was in Paisley presenting a new matriculation of arms to the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor, The Rt. Hon. Dame Elish Angiolini DBE QC, and Professor Craig Mahoney respectively, of the University of the West of Scotland. Several armigerous institutions were amalgamated to form the University including some new ones since its foundation so the arms are a sort of synopsis of the institutions' history. The arms were painted by Yvonne Holton, Herald Painter and Dingwall Pursuivant.
