Coat of arms

[City of George Town (Penang, Malaysia)] image provided by Andrew Yong, 5 January 2017  

The arms of the Municipal Council (from 1 January 1957, City Council) of George Town were granted by the English College of Arms on 4 September 1953. They were based on the arms of the Settlement of Penang, which were adopted in 1949:
Shield: Barry wavy of eight Azure and Argent a plume of three ostrich feathers Proper tied with a riband Or a chief embattled of the Last
Crest: On a wreath of the Colours issuant from a wreath of palm Vert a lion passant guardant Azure
Motto: "Leading We Serve"

The motto is a combination of the motto of the Prince of Wales, Ich Dien (I serve), and the unofficial motto of Penang, "Let Penang Lead". The City was merged in 1976 with the Rural District Council, Penang, to form the Municipal Council of Penang Island (now the City Council of Penang Island), which has its own coat of arms.
