South Glamorgan is a preserved county of Wales that was originally formed in as a county council area and was abolished in 1996. South Glamorgan continues in existence as a preserved county for purposes such as lieutenancy, and as such includes those communities.

The South Glamorgan (County Council 1974-1996) coat of arms consists of red/silver chevrons on gold/red combining two local families on a crowned roundel that represents the capital city; this is over ermine to display the rich valley and is between two towers. The crest consists of a mural crown and mitre representing the county council and the cathedral city. The supporters are of the red dragon of Wales and the red lion of the Princess of Wales, both are holding tridents to show their links with the sea.

The South Glamorgan shield consists of red/yellow chevrons on yellow/red combed on a crowned roundel. The ermine represents the rich valley and is guarded by castles.
