Falkirk council has an identical area to the previous Falkirk District Council and has accordingly been allowed to matriculate the same arms.
The arms are based on those of the area's four burghs. Tthe first quarter is for the Burgh of Falkirk. A version of the arms of the Callander family is used. The embattled bend refers to the Roman Antonine Wall. The second quarter is for the Burgh of Grangemouth. The stag's head and crosslet stand for the Bellenden family and Holyrood Abbey. The third quarter is for the Burgh of Bo'ness. The ship refers to the town's importance as a port. The red colour of the field stands for the Hamilton family, while the black is for the coal mining industry. The fourth quarter is for the Burgh of Denny and Dunipace. This shows the angel of peace. Three important treaties have been signed in the area.
The motto means "One for All".
