Origin/meaning

The Barberton Daisy alludes to the town of Barberton, the oldest town in the region. The main charge on the shield alludes to the fact that half of the region is on the Highveld (1500m above sea level) and half on the lowveld (less than 500m above sea level, some of which contains the Kruger Park). The region is bisected by a series of mountain faces.
