Rutland Glass & Glazing Logo

About this project

Our brief for this design was to create a eye catching logo which combined the history of Oakham & Rutland incorporating a Horseshoe and Acorns.

The horseshoe has traditionally been the symbol of Oakham since William the Conqueror gave the 125-square-mile (320 km2) estate to Henry de Ferrers, whose family name suggests a connection with iron-working or the farrier occupation. One of his privileges was to claim the forfeit of a horseshoe from anyone of rank visiting his lordship in Oakham. A unique collection of horseshoes presented by royalty and peers of the realm passing through the manor, hangs on the walls of the Hall in Oakham Castle.

The acorn exemplifies the former forest, which at one time covered much of the county. It can also be interpreted as representing “smallness and importance” and the oaks suggested by the name of Oakham. The green field represents the county’s agriculture, especially its rich pastureland.
