Dukinfield's armorial bearings are based on those of the Dukinfield family: the pointed cross is its symbol, and the arm holding a sun is part of the family arms. The raven represents the supposed derivation of the name Dukinfield from 'Doken', meaning a raven. The sheaf and feathers are from the arms of the Princes of Wales, Earls of Chester.
