The Waves – The Club’s proximity to the sea.
The Yellow Line Between the Waves – Our favourable climate conditions.
The Lamb – The pastoral wealth of the Waimeans.
The Swan – Derived from the Richmond (Surrey) Coat-of-Arms (from the armorial bearings of Richmond-On-Thmas, Surrey, England, from whence the name Richmond derives.
