Council logo & coat of arms
Coat of Arms Council Resolution 146/01
Coat of Arms
On the shield, the blue and white wavy band or fess, as it is called in heraldry, represents the Hunter River which flows through the town of Singleton and enters the sea at Newcastle. In earlier days most of the produce from the district was carried to Newcastle by ship, Newcastle having always been the largest port in NSW.

The Australian Army Emblem is a reference to units of the Australian Army being stationed on the outskirts of the town. The Friesian cow is symbolic of the dairying and cattle industry in the district which is one of the most highly productive areas in the State of NSW.

The crest shows an Australian Black Backed magpie, a bird common along the eastern coast line of NSW, holding a bunch of grapes in its beak and perched on a stand of coal. Singleton and the surrounding areas produce the best wines in NSW and coal is at the present time the main source of employment for inhabitants of the district.

The supporters consist of an indigenous inhabitant – that is to say an aboriginal man, and a well dressed landowner of earlier days. The badge takes up the theme of the crest and shows the Australian Black Backed magpie perched on a stand of coal within a black ring known as an annulet to give it distinctiveness.
