Do the BBC still have their Coat of Arms and
why were they granetd it
Kellow, do you really suppose that the BBC's coat of arms was "granted" to them? (e.g. by the government or similar)
Come on... the BBC is a broadcasting company, not a town/county or family surname, etc!!! (which are the types of things that usually have "officially recognised" coats-of-arms).
Indeed, the first sentence of the Wikipedia
article says that it "
[by the BBC]" which is what I suspected was the case.
Actually, in light of the above (i.e that something like a company/corporation seems likes a very unworthy candidate to bear such a thing as a coat-of-arms, given that coats-of-arms tend to imply things like "noble" (etc) connotations), then it's an incredibly pretentious thing for the BBC to have done, IMHO.
Companies/corporations/businesses/organisations (etc etc) might well have a
but surely not a coat-of-arms???
