Origin/meaning

The design of the Coat of Arms depicts the underlying character and identity of the City. The cogwheels and the plough represent strength in industry and agriculture. The white horse is symbolic of recreation and the City's importance as the horse racing centre of the State. The Tasmanian tiger and the white backed magpie are indigenous to the City and the State. The gold cross represents the church which provided a focus for the early villages which formed the foundation of Glenorchy City.
