Province: Eastern Cape (until 1994 Cape Province)
Metropolitan Municipality : Nelson Mandela Bay

Arms (crest) of Ibhayi

Official blazon


The arms were registered with the State Herald under the name of the short-lived Khayamnandi City Council.

The cinquefoils are most likely taken from the arms of Port Elizabeth, and the anchor likewise. The annulet is perhaps an allusion to the annulets of Van Riebeeck, which appear on the (red) mural crown in Port Elizabeth's arms.
