Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted on December 11, 1984.

The upper part of the shield represents Mont Dore posed on the blue of the Pacific Ocean. The constellation of the southern cross recalls the town is located in the extreme south of the Territory.

The mine cart refers to the exploitation of the Territory's first nickel mine around 1873, at the "Mont d'Or".

The last quarter represents a monstrance, the upper part of which is made of jade from Ile Ouen (municipality of Mont Dore).

The porpoise and swordfish symbolize the activities of the sea, such as big game fishing and tourism.
