Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on January 29, 1969.

The arms allude to Barberton being a gold-mining town (the oldest in South Africa). The chief depicts a 19th-century gold-crushing mill, and the base displays three Barberton daisies, which are named after the town (they also appear in the Mpumalanga provincial arms).
