Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on ?

Wheatsheaves represent agriculture, the harvest and prosperity, while anchors refer to the Borough’s ports and harbour and act as a symbol of hope and of security.

The design also references the World Heritage Site of the Giant’s Causeway and Altnahinch Dam while additional blue and white colours are a subtle celebration of Scottish connections.

The area's historic links to London are depicted through a dragon, which is balanced with the inclusion of an Irish Wolfhound.

The motto means Service with integrity
