About the city:
"Cambridge (2006 population 120,371) is a city located in Southern Ontario at the confluence of the Grand and Speed rivers in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It is an amalgamation of the City of Galt, the towns of Preston and Hespeler, and the hamlet of Blair. Galt covers the largest portion of Cambridge, making up the southern half of the city. Preston and Blair are located on the western side of the city, while Hespeler is in the most north-easterly section of Cambridge." - from Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridge,_Ontario
Official website: http://www.cambridge.ca
The Cambridge City Crest was designed by David Neale, a citizen of Cambridge, and contains elements from the corporate crests of Cambridge's founding municipalities Galt, Preston and Hespeler. Galt is represented by the mill wheel and water wheel that reflect the municipality's industrial past. The wheels are incorporated into the spinning wheel that represents the community's many textile industries. Preston is represented both by the clasped hands that exemplify the unity of Cambridge and by the seven trees. The beehive that demonstrated to the world that the town was the busy 'beehive of industry' represents Hespeler. The diagonal line through the centre represents the Speed and Grand Rivers. The triple arched bridge represents both the many bridges that can be found throughout the city, including an arched bridge in Downtown Cambridge, and an arched bridge in Cambridge, England. The design reflects the past developments and present unity of Cambridge.
