Official blazon
English blazon wanted


The arms were granted on ??.

The wheat sheaf represents agriculture, the cogwheel represents industry in Mississauga, and the falcon wings represent the aircraft industry. The trilliums positioned on the crown represent the flower of Ontario, while maple leaves represent Canada.

The waves at the bottom of the crest represent the Credit River that flows through Mississauga. The atomic symbol which appears above the crown represents the technological industries in Mississauga. There are three orbits in this figure, representing three towns that joined in 1974 to form the City of Mississauga: Streetsville, Port Credit and Mississauga.

The British officer and Mississauga Indian symbolize the "First Purchase." The Officer holds a scroll which represents the treaty and the Mississauga Indian holds four quills, which represents the four chiefs who signed it.
Below these figures is the City's motto: "Pride in our past, Faith in our future."
