Coat of Arms

Interpretation

Arms

The shield on which the arms are borne is divided into three sections. On the left hand section the black diamond symbolises the coal industry in the area and the golden wheat sheaf enclosed in the right hand section signifies agriculture. The third section at the base of the shield is enclosed by a ragged line which represents a part of the heritage coastline and the County Borough’s association with the sea is depicted by a green dolphin on three wavy blue lines.

Crest

On a wreath of red and gold on top of the helm, the red demi-dragon with a steel collar and chain around its neck and bearing in its right and left claw respectively an anchor and an engineering wheel, signifies industry.

Coat Of Arms

Supporters

The supporter on the left hand side of the shield is a red dragon and the mural gold crown around its neck signifies local government. The steel chain reflexed over its back attached to a triangular gold harrow represents agriculture, and the harrow is also supported by the right claw. The supporter on the right side of the shield is a silver sea horse with a green tail. The steel chain reflexed over its back attached to a black anchor by the left webbed foot also represents the sea.
