Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted on June 30, 1964.

The arms show in the upper part the waves for the Lake Malawi, in the middle the lion of England and in the base a sun, symbolising the rise of a new nation.

The supporters are a natual lion and leopard, the two largest predators in the country. The arms are placed on the Mulanje mountain range, the highest in the country.

The crest shows again symbols for the Lake Malawi (sea eagle, waves) and a sun. The motto is "Unity and Freedom".
