Information
Founded:June 1978
(officially recognized 9/12/1978)
Modern Location:Pomona Valley

Overview

Area: Pomona, San Dimas, La Verne, Diamond Bar, Claremont, Montclair, Ontario, Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, and the surrounding areas within the Pomona Valley.

Meaning: Heather for Scotland, as many of the founders have Scottish persona, and/or are Scots. Wyne, variation of wine, for all the vinyards and wineries that had been in the Valley. The arms of the Shire are canting, with the sprig of heather for the first half of the name, and the grapes symbolizing the wyne in the second half of the name. The battlement was to remind us always that the Shire was between a Rock and a Hard Place, being the two Baronies that surrounded us.

Established: June 10, 1978, one week after Caid became a Kingdom at the First Coronation.

Blazon: Or, on a fess embattled vert between two clusters of grapes crossed in saltire at the stems [Vitis vinifera caringnan] and a sprig of heather [Calluna vulgaris] proper a laurel wreath Or.
