Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on December 15, 1992.

The Red Coach symbolizes, that 100 Mile was one a road house/stop over on the Cariboo Trail. The Red Coach Inn was owned by Lord Martin Cecil, who owned most of the town in the early 20th century. I have no more information on the other symbols.
