The trees refer to the three royal forests of Kinver, Brewood and Cannock, which met at Tettenhall. The heraldic fountains represent the watershed and streams of the district, flowing into two oceans.

The windmill, representing structures once common in the area, stands for its windy and healthly heights. The axes refer to the battle of Tettenhall in 910, when King Edward the Elder defeated the Danes.
