Civic heraldry of Indonesia
The gold star means the loftiness and the honour of The One God which it has meaning as the dynamic co-ordination and co-operation between both institutions that are executive and legislative in performing region development.
The yellow rice grains and the cotton symbolise prosperity of food and clothing.
The monument refers to the "Tugu Pahlawan", a monument of the heroic battle of the Surabaya people against the Dutch Colonial Forces in 1945.
The motto "Jer Basuki Mawa Bea", is a famous Javanese slogan, which means "Achievements are only won through sacrifice".
The temple refers to the Candi Panataran (Panataran Temple). The Penataran is the largest and most important Hindu temple complex in East Java. It lies just 10 kilometres north of Blitar on the lower slopes of Mt Kelud. Dedicated to the god Siva, the temple was in use for at least three hundred years, from the 14th to 16th centuries. Most of the buildings which can be seen today, however, were constructed during Majapahit's golden century.
