Official blazon
English Gules, a tower issuant from the base proper; on the battlements thereof a lion passant guardant Or; on a chief embattled of the last a pair of wings conjoined in base between two anchors azure, and for the crest on a wreath argent and azure on front of a palm tree fructed proper, issuant from a mount vert, a lion passant Or.


The arms were granted on April 9, 1948 to the Singapore Municipal Commission.

The anchors and wings symbolise Singapore's twin role in international communications as seaport and air hub (Kallang Airport was opened in 1937). The lion on the tower symbolised Singapore in the arms of the Straits Settlements.
