Dumbarton (former district in Scotland), coat of arms (1977)

Official blazon

Azure, an elephant statant Argent, tusked Or, charged on the forehead with a crescent Gules, bearing on his back a tower Proper.

Above the Shield is placed a coronet appropriate to a statutory District, videlicet:-a circlet richly chased, from which are issuant eight thistle-heads (three and two halves visible) Or;• and in an Escrol under the same this Motto" Aonaichte".

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on July 25, 1977.

The arms are largely based on that of the former Dumbarton Burgh, se ebelow. As a difference the elephant is standing instead of walking and has a red crescent on the forehead. The crescent in English heraldry is indicating a second son, or in this case a re-grant.

The motto "Aonaichte" means "Togetherness", and symbolises the unification of the three burghs and the districts.
