The lower half of the shield depicts the gold wheatsheaf emblem of Cheshire on a green background. This is separated by a blue and white band representing the River Tame from the upper half of the shield, which contains the red rose of Lancashire on a gold background. The Crest above the shield has been drawn from the fundamental elements of the Arms of the Greater Manchester County.

The left-hand supporter is a gold lion with a black pierced star, or rowel, hanging from a chain around its neck. The right-hand supporter is a red griffin, to depict dynamism and progress, and hanging from a chain around its neck is a gold cogwheel indicating the industrial aspects of Tameside
