Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on December 1, 1948

The crosiers, which also appear in the arms of the Borough of Wrexham, refer to Valle Crucis Abbey and to grazing land in the district. The bulls' heads represent stock raising, and the black and gold lozenges symbolize coal mining and mineral wealth.

The dragon is the Welsh national emblem, it stands in front of a oak-tree alluding to forestry, and supports a shield bearing an heraldic representation of a brick wall referring to brick-making.
