The Whitworth Coat of Arms illustrated here is officially documented in "Rietstap's Armorial General." A translated description of the arms (shield) is as follows:

"Ermine; a black engrailed bend; in chief a red wheat sheaf;
in base a red rose with green leaves and stem."

Above the shield and helmet is the crest which is described as:

"On a green mound,
a red wheat sheaf between two red roses
with green leaves and stems."

At left, is a variation of the Whitworth Coat of Arms created by Craig Whitworth.
