I have no information on the origin or meaning of these arms. Any information is welcome.

During colonial times the city used the arms below.

Colonial arms

The arms were officially adopted on November 7, 1927 and granted on October 14, 1930.


Gedeeld : I. in azuur een padi-aar van goud ; II. in zilver een tak van een theeplant van natuur lijke kleur. Het schild gedekt met een gouden kroon van drie bladeren en twee paarlen. Schildhouders : twee leeuwen van goud, getongd en genageld van keel.

The initial arms showed a kind or a mural crown, which was not acceptable by the Dutch Court of Arms. The city then adopted the common crown for all cities.

The arms show a divided shield with the two main crops in the area, rice and tea.
