The shield is broken into two parts. The upper part called the Chief is made of blue and gold. It derives from the De Warrene family, Earls of Surrey and goes back to at least 1300. The lower part called the Field, the main part is the chevron, (coloured blue). On the main field there are three maple leaves, they represent, the countryside, the Acer Rubrum in the High Street and our links with Canada.
The motto in gold blue and red CRANLEIGH CARITATEM HABET translated means Cranleigh has charity. This is reduced to Cranleigh Cares.
