The arms are: “Per chevron, dexter, barruly of azure and or (fourteen pieces), sinister, barruly of or and azure (fourteen pieces); in base azure a bear in natural colours passant without raising a paw and surmounted by a fess silver in its turn surmounted by a mullet or".   There is also a patrician’s(?) crown within which are placed crossed branches of olive (sinister) and oak (dexter).  
The gonfanon was granted with the arms in 1996: “White field, richly decorated with gold embroidery and bearing the above arms in the centre, and the name of the Province above it in gold.  Metal parts and cordons will be golden. The vertical shaft is covered with white velvet, with golden balls placed in a spiral. The arrowhead will contain the arms and the stem engraved with its name.  Cravat with ribbons in the national colours, fringed in gold".  The text: is ‘PROVINCIA DI BIELLA’, and two laurel branches in natural colours, tied together by a ribbon in the national colours, below the arms.
