Civic heraldry of Zimbabwe
Province : Harare
The copper crosses on the red field symbolise the copper mining in the area. The strip of ermine and the cross are symbols for the Portuguese Kings and are a reference to the early trading in the area with Europeans. The maize cobs stand for agriculture and the leopard's head, bearing a collar, is symbolic of the wilderness being overcome by civilisation.
Literature : The municipal heraldry of Zimbabwe, ARMA 1286-1289
