The arms were granted in 1937. The green and white colours of the arms echo the county's pasture-lands and chalk downs. The striped field also recalls the arms of the city of Salisbury. The canton bears the dragon badge of Wessex. The crest has the great bustard which is now extinct in England. It is claimed that Wiltshire was its last refuge.
