Tonbridge Angels F.C.
Formed in 1948, Tonbridge Angels FC adopted as its own, the town crest of Tonbridge (which itself was granted to the now defunct Tonbridge Urban District Council in 1935).
The bridge of five arches is indicative of the five waterways that once crossed Tonbridge High Street. The ship - imposed across these waterways - implies the importance to Tonbridge of navigable water to the town for the 100 years before the coming of the railway.
The royal emblem (a lion passant guardant) is shown on one of the towers because of the historic fact that the Great Seal of England was for some weeks kept in Tonbridge Castle during one of the visits to France of Edward I.
The moto "Salus Populi Suprema Lex" was one of the twelve ancient laws of Rome. It means "the welfare of the people is the highest law".
Thanks to Ken Jarrett, Secretary at Tonbridge Angels FC, for the above crest and information.
