Official blazon

Arms : Azure dexter a lamb couchant contourné Argent unguled Or sinister a lion couchant also Or between seven trillium flowers three in chief four in base proper.
Crest: A mural crown Azure masoned and and charged at each merlon with a maple leaf Or.


The arms were granted on December 11, 1993.

The coat of arms is based closely on the Waterloo County emblem which was adopted in 1853. The design incorporates a lion and lamb - the biblical allegories of peace and prosperity - as well as seven trilliums which represent the seven area municipalities, and the Region's place in Ontario. Above the shield is a mural coronet, a traditional symbol of municipalities.
