Austin Morris Premier emblem.
The Austin and Morris cars produced by British Motor Corporation (later Leyland Motor Corporation or Leykor) carried coats of arms.
The Morrises carried the municipal arms of Oxford, showing a red ox above wavy barrulets representing water. These, like the VW badges, also became stylised. They most likely go back to the early models produced by Lord Nuffield's factories.
