City of Northcote Coat of Arms

The Coat of Arms for the City of Northcote was established when the city was established in 1883.

The emblems used in the Coat of Arms have no particular significance. The Motto - 'Pro Bono Ad Meliora' (from good things to better) - is stated to be that of the Goodwright family, but there appears to be no particular reason for using this family's motto.
