Blaenau Gwent Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for Blaenau Gwent

The green and white colours of the mantling and creat wreath are the livery of the Tudor kings and of Wales. The crest features a red Welsh dragon, based on that used by the old Ebbw Vale and Crickhowell Councils. The dragon is placed on a mound of coal for coal mining, and breathes flames and has a steel collar and supports a pair of mill rolls for the steel industry. The arms are supported by two more dragons similar to the one in the crest, each supporting a coal pick. The motto is UNDEB A RHYDDID meaning Unity and Freedom.
