The Coat-of-Arms of
|When the Florham Madison Campus was added, the Castle was represented by
a vestigial set of battlements, and three Lancastrian roses were added above.
Madison, Morris County, New Jersey, is known as the "Rose City":
rose culture was formerly a local agricultural pursuit. The roses are Lancastrian
to accord with the political leanings of the North family, the ancestral
owners of Wroxton Abbey.|
The official heraldic description is:
Azure; a fess gules crenellated; on the chief three roses argent; on the base a swan argent.
A more elaborate coat-of-arms was designed and approved for the university by the Heralds of the College of Arms, appointed by the Queen (of England). It has seldom been used, but you may read of it in Dr. Sammartino's book Of Castles and Colleges (1972).
The university motto is placed on a ribbon below.
