32 rectangular traceried panes, centred by a monochrome armorial panel: Gules, three bendlets enhanced Or; a chief argent, thereon on waves of the sea a ship under sail proper. A terrestrial globe semée of bees volant, all proper, upon a torse. Dexter a heraldic antelope argent, attired sinister a lion gardant Or, murally crowned Gules; each charged on the shoulder with a rose, above banner "Manchester".

Significance of the elements of the Coat of Arms:
The ship at sea in full sail is a reference to the city's trading base, and to the Manchester Ship Canal. The terrestrial globe signifies Manchester's world trade, and the swarm of flying bees are a symbol of industry - Manchester being the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. On the right a golden lion stands crowned with a castle (a reference to the Roman fort at Castlefield from which the city originated). The lion and antelope both wear the Lancashire Rose.
