Civic heraldry of South Africa
The arms were granted on September 8, 1972.
The shape of the shield is the traditional Tswana shield. The mine, head and crops show the three main sources of income for the people, mining (mine shaft), farming (sorghum) and cattle ranching. The spear and axe represent authority of the chiefs, as do the leopard supporters. The motto means If we stand together and work hard, we shall be blessed.
