Following the re-demarcation of South African local authorities in December
2000, Klerksdorp, Hartbeesfontein, Orkney and Stilfontein amalgamated to form a new local authority called City of Matlosana
and new municipal symbols were adopted. The new municipal logo comprises two
human figures with arms and legs outstretched against a yellow and green stripe
reflecting the gold mining and agricultural basis of the area with the figures
evoking the dynamism of its people.
