The basic colour and principal charge on the Cobourg family of Saxony was blue with a white rose both of which are prominently featured here with two gold lions as are those to be found in the royal Arms of England. The chief is embattled to recall the towns military associations. Likewise the two black rings (annulets sable) gun barrels symbolise the town's close connection with the military. The Maple Leaf in the Centre Chief is of course symbolic of Canada.
