Lord Mayor of Swansea
The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of the City and County of Swansea Councillor Mike Day for the municipal year 2022/23.
This year, the Lord Mayor's Charity Fund supports Maggie's Cancer Centre Swansea and Zac's Place.
History of the Mayoralty
In September 1835, Swansea's old corporation, headed by the portreeve, was replaced by a new municipal corporation.
Chains of Office
Swansea's elaborate heraldic mayoral chain and badge are remarkable examples of the Victorian goldsmith's art.
Coat of Arms
The early history of the Arms of Swansea is obscure. An unfounded legend has it that the original device was an Osprey, which now forms the crest of the present Achievement of Arms and also the present badge of the Mayor.
