The town is the centre of a large farming community, the importance of which to the local community is alluded to by the green background.  The maize cob in the shield also signifies agriculture and the cog-wheel symbolises industry.  The open book and “Torch of Learning” signifies that Marondera is an educational centre.  The motto is “FLOREAT MARONDERA” which means “May Marondera Flourish”.
