Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on January 12, 1988.

The formal training of nurses in KwaZulu started in mission hospitals, represented by the partition per fess enarched, with a cross issuant, accompa­nied in base by a representation of a traditional Zulu home, a bee-hive shaped grass hut. The Stre­litzia reginae is the provincial flower of Natal, two of which have been incorporated into the crest, supporting a nurse's lamp.
