Explanation of the Coat of Arms:
As Walkerville is mainly an agricultural area and the Ratepayers' Association showed a preference for something of "nature" and "greenness" to be symbolised, we took these ideas as central to the design
The trefoil in the shield head has been styled to the likeness of small trees. The cross bourdonny on the base of the shield was originally seen as a cross, the arms of which end in the form of an apple. The English heraldic description is fitting "Apple Cross". This also pertains to the fact that one of the areas of Walkerville is called "Apple Orchards".
The enarched division of the shield can be seen as a reference to Spioenkop in your area. The mural crown functioning as a crest symbolises the public administration function of the Ratepayers' Association. The idea is, of course derived from the ancient city walls and is commonly found on the crests of local authorities. A motto on a ribbon should be added (preferably in Latin).
Use of the Coat of Arms:
The Coat of Arms is the registered property of the Walkerville Ratepayers' Association and may not
be used without written consent.
Although several associations and clubs have been granted permission to use the coat of arms, they have seldom been allowed to use the full crest.
