Arms of Richards Bay

Official blazon


The Fish Eagle is common to the area and aptly conveys the impression of the sea and fishing, two major enterprises in the town.

The cog wheel represents industry.

The fleur-de-lis and the armor are derived from the coat of arms of Sir Frederick Richards after whom Richards Bay was named.

The ship in full sail represents the port.
