Coat of arms of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai

The coat of arms of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai is the governing body of the city of Mumbai) is a four-panel shield supported by an intertwining floral border in gold. A lotus in bloom, an emblem of purity and beauty, is at the bottom, and a lion puissant surmounts it. The panels are inscribed as follows:

Top Left: The Gateway of India, one of Mumbai’s most prominent landmarks, signifies the position of Mumbai as a veritable gateway to India.
Top Right: A symbolic factory inscribed in a cog wheel signifies the industrial importance of Mumbai.
Bottom Left: The three sailing ships in outline denote Mumbai’s pre-eminence as a port and commercial centre.
Bottom Right: A symbolized diagram of the Corporation building depicting the seat of Local Self Government in Mumbai.

At the base of the shield, the motto in Sanskrit यतो धर्मस्ततो जय (Sanskrit: Where there is Righteousness, there shall be Victory) is inscribed in gold.
