ELM Coat Of Arms
The coat of arms is based on a Nguni-type shield, resisting on top of which is a mural crown, customarily used in the arms of the municipal authorities. The shield is a cooling tower. On this is a Jupiter’s thunderbolt placed in allusion to the generating of electricity and in the lower part a heraldic foundation. These elements can be seen as referring to Kriel/Ogies region with the green also linking the design to agriculture. On either side are black diamonds, which refer to the rich coal deposits in the area. The diamond pattern is repeated on the mural crown.
