The arms were granted in February 1986.
The shield forms the centrepiece of the coat of arms and on the top of the shield is the crest, a helmet with a wreath in the silver and red colours of St George. Upon this helmet is a knight in armour representing St George himself. The knight wears full armour with a buckled cloak, and has an ostrich feather in the helmet. The knight carries his spear in his right hand and the spear is stained from the blood of the slain dragon. In his left hand he carries his staff with the narrow flag carrying the St George colours of silver and red.
The coat of arms is supported by two dragons with inverted wings, the outside of their bodies green and the underparts red. They both rest their hindfeet on the stock of a tree.
The motto reads By Wisdom and Courage.
