Swindon Coat of Arms

CRESCENT MOON & STAR


Introduced as an emblem of the Islamic faith by the Ottomans, the constantly regenerating moon is a reflection of God’s everlasting purpose and control.  Portrayed with the star the symbol represents divine authority and paradise.  Just as the moon and stars are guiding lights so too is Islam.
