Coat of arms

An archive of Chevy Chase Village's website details the coat of arms
Archived Source:

The proposed Coat of Arms of Chevy Chase Village was presented to the Board of Managers by Mr. Leonard Humphrey, Jr. (Village Board Member, Treasurer and Engineer) in April 1974 as designed by himself, Ms. Edith Claude Jarvis (Village Historian) and a young neighbor of Mr. Humphrey's believed to be the artist. The Board adopted the design in the early 1980's.

The upper portion depicts the top part of the Great Seal of Maryland consisting of sections of the Calvert and Crossland Arms. The Black-eyed Susan, Maryland's State Flower, is shown in the border below Chevy and Chase.

The lower portion represents the Coat of Arms of the Montgomery family and denotes loyalty, truth, military courage and prowess; all virtues required of a knight serving a king. Fleurs-de-lis in the lower right corner are reminders of the French ancestry of the Montgomery family. The rings with blue stones proclaim royal favor and protection. The three leaf clover in the center border of the shield portrays Hope, Joy and Victory.

The center portion represents two of the main references to Chevauchée in days of old (since passed on to Chevy Chase). They are the Scottish thistle, and the red bloodied arrow which killed English Lord Percy on the Cheviot Hill of Scottish Earl Douglas in 1308.

The crown at the top of the Coat of Arms represents the Board of seven Managers governing Chevy Chase Village. The Village flag waves above all.
