Origins of the Three Crowns
Although popularly referred to as Crowns, they are in fact Coronets. It is clear that they started out as crowns, but the language of heraldry has evolved, and their official heraldic designation is “ducal coronets.” But it scarcely matters as everyone knows them as the Three Crowns!
There have been many theories about what the three crowns represent. One suggestion has been that the “ducal coronets” represent particular dukedoms... It has also been thought that they represent the Three Kings of the Nativity story, that travelled from the East to bring gifts to Jesus.
Hull's Coat of Arms
The “three crowns” have been used as Hull’s coat of arms since the early 1400s. A depiction of the shield in stained glass in St Mary’s Church Lowgate dates from the reign of Richard III (1483-85) and is among the earliest versions to survive.
