Carlisle City Council

The number of roses on the wyvern's wings is not specified, and official and equally correct reproductions may be seen with either four or six roses on each wing. The motto beneath the arms comes from Wolsey's speech to Cromwell in Shakespeare's Henry VIII and was adopted by the city about 1850.

Cumbria County Council

The red dragon refers to those that support the device of Appleby - the ancient county town of Westmorland; also it is heraldically related to the red wyverns of Carlisle and symbolises the connection, going back to Celtic times, between Cumbria and Cambria (Wales).

West Dorset District

The sea wyverns are appropriate to a district which was once the centre of the Kingdom of Wessex (whose kings used a golden wyvern as their emblem) and with traditional maritime associations. They are gorged with Saxon Crowns as are the dragon supporters in the arms of the Dorset County Council.
