Sir George was granted his own coat of arms by the College of Arms in March of 2004. His shield features three beetles under a martin holding a recorder. Below his motto is a zebra carrying a Bishop's staff. His motto (AMORE SOLUM OPUS EST) can be loosely translated as "All You Need Is Love". Under the heading "The Arms of Sir George Martin, Kt., C.B.E.", his coat of arms can be seen in the George Martin's Coat Of Arms Blog on the front page of this guide.
