Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on May 2, 1951.

The chequers are from the arms of the Ward family, who held the Manor, and the red chevron and Stafford knot are from the arms of the Staffordshire CC. The black chief alludes to the industry of the Black Country with special reference to mineral workings and tarmacadam, and the cressets represent blast furnaces.

Sedgely beacon-tower, which forms the crest, is a familiar landmark owned by the Council.
