|Heraldry of the World
Civic heraldry of South Africa
District Municipality : Gert Sibande
These arms were officially registered in 1998.
The symbolism is the same as in the arms of Ermelo, the capital of the new municipality. The mine headgear in the Ermelo arms has been replaced by a more armorial representation of coal-mining, i.e. the lozenges ("black diamonds").
Literature : Image scanned from a cigarette card from the 1930s; background from Arthur Radburn.
