The local authority, a unitary authority, is Middlesbrough Borough Council. From 1889, Middlesbrough was a county borough in Yorkshire, but in 1968 it became the centre of the County Borough of Teesside, which was then absorbed by the non-metropolitan county of Cleveland in 1974. In 1996, Cleveland was abolished, and Middlesbrough became a unitary authority, within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire. "Erimus", in Latin, was chosen as Middlesbrough's motto in 1830, to signify the town's will to grow. The town's coat of arms show an azure lion beneath 2 ships to represent the port of Middlesbrough. The design is based on that of the Brus family who owned the site on which Middlesbrough is built.
