The Arms of L'orlan signify the city's famous cork industry, its eccentricity and artful culture, and its attachment to the culture and economy of the east.

The axes are both the kind used to strip a cork oak of its bark, whilst the acorns are intended to refer to the oaks themselves. The tincture mar is the colour of malachite, the first artificial dye to become widespread, and is symbolic of inspiration and a love of the arts. The norbau and bal are both colours typical of Empyrian iconography, however without the purple so liberally worn by the traditionalists of the west.

The per pall division, essentially a vertical bicolour with a triangle in the upper half of the shield facing downwards, is typically used as a symbol of power through diplomacy and trade, something the City favours whenever possible.

The two talbots (hounds) as supporters are a reference to Altane culture of the east, which was, amongst many things, said to be responsible for domesticating the hound for the purposes of sport hunting. In the time of their domestication, the lands of L'orlan were very much a part of the Altean culture of sportsmanship when the rest of Tyvic was divided into its many largely disparate principalities, with L'orlan's immediate regions pleasantly illustrated as being popular hunting grounds for the Altean elite.
