Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on September 20, 1954 and continued by the new council of North-East Derbyshire.

The gold field and Tudor rose are derived from the arms of Derbyshire County Council. To these have been added a pickaxe for coalmining. The black engrailed bordure suggests a chipped coal face, and it is charged with gold rings suggestive of the mineral wealth of the district. The crest has a distinctively coloured mural crown from which rises the famous twisted spire of Chesterfield Church.
