The arms were officially granted on May 29, 1933.

The arms show a crown and a cross, with the motto "Modoetia magni est sedes Italiae regni" ("Modoetia - the ancient name of Monza - is the capital of the great kingdom of Italy"). In Monza the "iron crown", used for the coronation of the Italian kings, is kept. The legend tells that the crown was made with gold and one iron nail of the Holy Cross.
