Description

This series contains a colour drawing of the original Gold Coast City Council Official Crest. The crest, which was replaced by the Gold Coast's current official coat of arms in 1995, shows a shield containing images of a pelican, a lifesavers’ surf reel, the old Council Chambers in Nerang Street flanked by the ‘golden road to prosperity’, and dolphins. Above the shield is a crown, ringed with a ‘rising sun’ effect. The motto within the scroll 'Prope Flumen et Oceanum' means 'Near River and Ocean', although it was often interpreted colloquially as 'Where Rivers and Oceans Meet'. This design was adapted from earlier versions of the Town of Southport's crest.
