There is a complicated set of coronets for the different forms of local authority – city, island, unitary authority, community council and so on – but the historic mural coronet (for Royal Burghs) has not been used since burghs were abolished in 1975. For more on this, consult or download the late R.M. Urquhart’s quite wonderful Scottish Burgh and County Heraldry (1973) and Scottish Civic Heraldry (2 volumes, 1979).
