Quincy Coat of Arms
"Gules, with voided mascles conjoined, three, three, and one, or" is the heraldic description of the Quincy House coat of arms. Adopted by crusader Sieur de Quincy in the 13th century, the seal has been part of the illustrious Quincy tradition for 700 years.
The coat of arms came to this country from England late in the 17th century and was borne in subsequent years by Josiah Quincy, President of Harvard.
Translating from the archaic, Master John M. Bullitt '43, describes the coat of arms as "red, with hollow diamonds joined together in rows of three, three, and one in gold."
