The arms were officially granted on March 2, 1896.

Immediately under the Viking Ship is placed a Lion Rampant, representing the Arms of the Athole family; and in the quarter adjoining, the Three Legs of Man ungartered, the whole being surmounted by the Monarchal Crown of Her Majesty the Queen, as Lord of Man.

Underneath is a scroll with the words "Borough of Douglas", and another scroll containing the words in Manx Kiannoortys cheus thie jeh Kiannoortys, which, in English means Government within a Government, the Latin being Imperium in Imperio.
