The ship represents the coming of the early settlers to the Hutt Valley. The garbs of wheat denote agriculture as the first occupation carried on in the area now occupied by the City, and the cogwheel represents present day industrial growth. On the Chief is superimposed a canton with the arms of Sir William Hutt, K.C.B. (1801-1882), a Member of Parliament in England and a Director of the New Zealand Company, from whom the Cry takes its name.
