Civic Honours

Civic honours are awarded for a community work as well as bringing distinction to the city and not activities carried out during the course of a person’s normal duties for which he/she is paid and due recognition given in terms of that person’s contract. Such activities should be over and above one’s work.

The Civic Honours Book, which was made locally, is bound in blue leather with the City’s Coat of Arms embossed in gold on the cover. The frontispiece of the book shows the City’ Coat of Arms in heraldic colours and scribed thereon is the resolution of the council passed on 3rd July 1963.

Each page contains a citation referring to the person honoured, which is also signed by the recipient, to whom a copy of the citation is presented.
