The red chevronels on a gold field are taken from the arms of the London Borough of Newham . To these have been added three finials bottony suggesting a Saxon crown which featured in the arms of the former Greater London Council. The chevronels can also be taken as an allusion to the London roofline and are accompanied by diving London pigeons. The armorial bearings of Newham also feature a crozier which has been combined with a fox in the crest (Lord Stratford had a particular interest in Charles James Fox, the eighteenth century politician). The hammers in the forefeet of the supporters allude to West Ham Football Club (the "Hammers"), whose ground is located in Lord Stratford's former constituency.
