The arms were granted on January 25, 1938.

The green shield sybolises the open spaces of the Borough, and the crown and seaxes, from the arms of the Middlesex CC, refer to the Saxon origins of the district.

The lions recall John Lyon, founder of Harrow Scool, whose home was at Preston Manor, Wembley. He established a trust, of which the Borough became beneficiary, for the maintenance of Harrow Road and Edgware Road, parts of which are within the Borough boundaries. The balance refers to the Hundred Moot of Gore, and the cornucopia symbolises prosperity.
