NATIONAL ARMS OF HONDURAS

Arms (crest) of National Arms of Honduras

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The national arms of Honduras were adopted in 1825 and show a round shield, surrounded by the motto "Republica de Honduras Libre Soberana E Independiente", and surrounded by two cornucopiae, a crest with a quiver of arrows and placed on a landscape.

The shield itself shows the triangle, based on the seal of the Central American Federation of the early 19th century, with two towers, a rainbow and sun. Between the towers a mountain is placed. The towers symbolise the defense readiness and the independence of the country. The triangle symbolizes equality and freedom.

Some images of the arms as shown on different collector's items from 1900-1960, which are not always very exact:
