Windhoek still uses the coat of arms granted by the then Administrator of South West Africa on 01 October 1966. These were later registered with the South African Bureau of Heraldry on 02 October 1970. Initially a stylized aloe was the principle charge but this was later amended to a natural aloe on 15 September 1972. The Arms are described as:
ARMS: Argent, a Windhoek aloe (Aloe Rubrolutea) with a raceme of three
flowers on an island, proper.
CREST: A mural crown Or.
MOTTO: SUUM CUIQUE (To every man his own).
