The arms were officially granted on July 18, 1882.

The lower part of the shield is derived from the arms of the local manorial family of Hyde, suitably difference by change of tincture and nebuly treatment of the chevron. The other emblems (a flake surmounted by a Hatter's Bow between a cogwheel and two miner's picks and a Davy lamp) and the crest (a cotton branch and spindle) refer to local industries.
