This brooch is the county emblem of Warwickshire. The emblem has been linked to the earls of Warwick since the 14th century. Medieval legends have it that the Earl of Warwick at the time of King Arthur was called Arthgal, which was thought to have come from the Welsh word ‘artos’ or bear. The ragged staff came from a legend about another Earl of Warwick Morvidus, who polished off a giant using the broken branch of a tree. In truth the bear was a heraldic symbol of courage.
