– Mercian Regiment's motto
The regiment's name comes from the ancient kingdom of Mercia, which now lies in the heart of modern England. Its nickname is a reference to the Berserkers of Norse legend, who are usually depicted as fierce and fearless warriors.
The regiment's logo was designed by Dendodge, with the approval of then Lt. Col. EmeraldEye, in May 2010. It depicts a Mercian two-headed eagle on the normal round badge shared by all UK military units. Its motto—"Stand Firm and Strike Hard"—is intended to highlight the unity and strength of the regiment.
