Our Emblem

Marine Parade
The Town Council's emblem was launched on 7 October 1993. The emblem is a representation of the Town Council’s primary role, which entails the effective and efficient management of the Town and its amenities.

The three blue wavy bands depict the housing blocks of varied designs within the town and its tranquil proximity to the sea. The vibrant turquoise triple 'M' motif symbolises the Town Council's growth and dynamism, as well as its aim to create a happy community in a friendly environment. It also symbolises a close and united community.
