"Caerphilly - Caerffili" Caerphilly by grayfo
Caerphilly Travel Guide: 122 reviews and 420 photos
Caerphilly is located in the heart of South Wales and was traditionally in the county of Glamorgan and later became part of Mid-Glamorgan which was abolished in 1996 and then became part of the preserved county of South Glamorgan. In 2003 the ceremonial borders were further adjusted, placing the entire Caerphilly county borough into the preserved county of Gwent. Virtual Tourist places Caerphilly in Mid-Glamorgan so for the sack of tidiness that will do for me.

The coat of arms consists of an ermine shield with a blue invected chevron which symbolises the area's natural beauty and rivers. The castle shown represents Caerphilly castle and for the Borough's history in general. The red dragon of Wales holds a Celtic wheel cross and rises from a green crown that represents Gwent county council. The supporters are taken from Islwyn's arms, the clarion from Mid Glamorgan's arms and the fleur-de-lis from Gwent's. The cressets symbolise the traditional heavy industries of the district.
