Introduction

Canvey Island is an island in the Thames Estuary in Essex. It has 18.44 km2, with about 38 000 inhabitants.

The island became Canvey Island Urban District Council in 1926 and ceased to exist in 1974. Canvey Island now is part of Castle Point Borough Council and Essex County Council. In 2007 the Canvey Island Parish Council became Canvey Island Town Council.

Flag

This is a picture of the original Canvey Island Flag. The Coat of Arms was first granted to Canvey’s Urban Council in 1971. The photo shows a white flag with coat of arms which was in use 1971-1974, so it must be from that period. https://www.canveyisland.org/abc-2/the-original-canvey-flag

Today, the CITC uses the same coat of arms, and probably the same flag.

Arms

Coat of arms: Canvey’s Coat of Arms was first granted to Canvey’s Urban Council in 1971. At the top is the Dutch Cottage. The sea wall is represented by the inner golden escutcheon. The inside is embattled to show the reinforcement. The blue wavy lines on a white background show the River Thames and the white droplets are related to the salt extraction. The green lozenge shape is the island and the fat-tailed sheep and the oyster shells show the past industry. The motto ‘Ex Mare Dei Gratia’ means ‘From the sea by the Grace of God’. https://www.canveyisland.org/abc-2/canvey-islands-coat-of-arms

In October 2007, the Town Council applied to the College of Arms for the official transfer of the Canvey Island Urban District Council’s ‘armorial bearings’. The completion of the transfer was reported in May 2008 when the Council was officially able to use the coat of arms.

The coat of arms is officially described as follows: ‘Wavy white lines on a blue background signify the River Thames that constantly laps the Island’s shores, whilst the snow-white droplets allude to the early salt extraction. The Island itself is fashioned as a green diamond lozenge, with the fat-tailed sheep that provided for the cheese-making industry in the centre. Oyster shells stand at the four corners referring to another past industry. The sea walls are represented by the inner golden escutcheon; the inside is embattled to show the reinforcement of them. They are divided into seven equal parts, referring to the seven main drainage sluices that had previously been present. Finally, on the crest stands the Dutch Cottage and the motto ‘Ex Mare Dei Gratia’ meaning, ‘From the sea by the Grace of God’ . https://canveyisland-tc.gov.uk/council/about-the-council/town-council-crest/
