The dark green hills represent our rural farming landscape upon which is charged the iconic Pewsey White Horse which stands over the village.

The crown represents King Alfred who has a statue in the village centre and who once held land in Pewsey. The oak leaves represent the solidity of the village.

The horse is a depiction of the chalk horse on a hillside nearby - see,-1.75653,120m/data=!3m1!1e3 for an image of it. The "eye" may have grown over its edge through time?
