Long Description:
Richmond Hill’s association with the Duke of Richmond started in 1819 with his visit to the area. About 1919, the Council of Richmond Hill commissioned a logo for its signs and stationery. Adapting the logo from the Duke of Richmond’s coat-of-arms, it represented a brave and regal lion standing on a hat with ermine (both symbols of high rank) framed by Richmond Hill’s world-famous roses and the motto “Like the rose I flourish.”
