The Story of our logo

FPP Logo Final 2014 (v2) 448The concept for the logo originates from the strong Cowper family influence on the Panshanger estate of the past 300 years.

The lions forearm or “gamb” that sits atop the shield holding an oak branch is based on the Cowper family crest. The actual crest can be seen on the wall of the house that is known as South Lodge and also on the tomb within St Mary’s Church in Hertingfordbury.

The three golden rings that wrap around the shield are a nod toward the three golden rings from the Cowper coat of arms.

The blue ribbon that holds our motto, is an inference to the river Mimram which forms an integral part of the landscape and has been the cause of so much architectural and landscaping inspiration over the years

“Tuum Est” means “it is thine” or in modern parlance “it is yours”. This fits well with our Values in making the park open to all.

The oak leaves & acorns celebrate the existence of the majestic 600 year old oak that resides within the Panshanger park.
