CENTENARY OF PARISH CRESTS

The 12 parish crests are such a familiar part of everyday life – they appear on Jersey banknotes, signs, documents, flags – and seem as ancient and historically rooted as the three leopards or the red saltire flag. They are, in fact, only 100 years old and celebrate their centenary this year.

Find out how a Royal visit led to their creation 1921 and this month the focus is on St Helier.
