Coat of Arms

The crown represents that Georgetown was named after royalty, and that it is the capital of Kings County. The eagle represents the proud spirit of the town’s people, along with reflecting a heritage of sport teams called “The Eagles.” The arts and entertainment masks represent the Kings Playhouse, the center for the performing arts in eastern Prince Edward Island. The lobsters represent the fishing industry, which plays an integral part of the Georgetown economy. The sailing schooner represents our proud shipbuilding heritage, which continues to this day. It also represents trade and commerce. The scales of justice represent the Kings County Courthouse which was built in 1886. The dates “1732" and "1912” are the years in which the Georgetown area first became known by the Europeans, and the year of Incorporation, respectively. - Municipal website
