Coat-of-arms of the Town of Riverside – 1957

Coat-of-Arms of the Town of Riverside – 1957

The Coat-of-Arms above appeared in the Windsor Star in May, 1957, along with a tongue in cheek article mocking Windsor’s neighbours to the east for having a spelling error in the Latin of their new Coat-of-Arms.

The motto as shown reads “Justicia et Pax”. Which was supposed to translate to “Justice and Peace”. However to have obtained that translation, the first word should have been “Justutia”. The Star pointed out that translated as written, it translated to: “A genus of tropical herbs or chrubs of the acanthus family with small varicolored flowers and peace”. It is assumed that the spelling was corrected, and the crest put into place as intended.

The Town of Riverside existed as a separate municipality from 1921 until it was amalgamated into Windsor in 1966. This is the first time in all my years of running this website, that I’ve come across the town of Riverside crest.
