The White Lion Society is a society of friends of the College of Arms. It exists to support the College in its various official functions, as well as to assist in the preservation of the College’s building. The Society also makes significant contributions to the conservation of the College’s precious archive of manuscripts, and to the acquisition of new items for the archive and the library.

The Society was founded in 1986 and it raises funds through subscriptions and events as well as through donations.

The President of the Society is The Duke of Norfolk, GCVO, Earl Marshal.

All those with an interest in heraldry and genealogy or who would like to support the work of the College of Arms are encouraged to join the White Lion Society, which they will find to be friendly and convivial. They will receive a quarterly Newsletter, and an invitation to an Annual Reception held at the College of Arms. A number of visits are arranged for members each year to sites of heraldic interest. Other periodic events and celebrations are held.

The College is also supported by American friends via the College of Arms Foundation.
