Paul's recently granted Coat of Arms is pictured on the right and now included in the original stories posted here @ MACCA-Central. Here is a link to the College of Arms

The arms of Sir Paul McCartney, Kt., M.B.E.

Granted 18 June 2001

Arms: Or between two Flaunches fracted fesswise two Roundels Sable over all six Guitar Strings palewise throughout counterchanged.

Crest: On a Wreath of the Colours A Liver Bird calling Sable supporting with the dexter claws a Guitar Or stringed Sable.

Motto: ECCE COR MEUM (Behold my heart)

The design of these arms (granted on Sir Paulís 59th birthday) clearly recalls Sir Paulís principal instrument, the guitar. In addition the cormorant or Ďliver birdí in the crest is a reference to his native city, Liverpool. The helmet is left-facing and has an open visor as is customary for knights; Sir Paul was made a knight bachelor in 1997.

The result is a simple and distinct design that makes a clear reference to the granteeís career without departing from the standard vocabulary of the English heraldic tradition.
