The chief shows symbols taken from the arms of the three most influential families in the history of the region; the fleur-de-lys for the Montgomery family, the black cross with the hedgehog for the Maxwell of Caerlaverock family and the cross and crescent for the Cathcart of Cathcart family. The wavy division line symbolises the Cart river.
