Heraldry

National arms

The arms were granted on May 14, 1958.

Previously the islands had no own arms or badge. The arms show the British lion as the islands are a British Crown Colony in the upper part. The three stars on the waves symbolise the islands themselves. The crest shows a turtle and pineapple. The motto is 'He hath founded it upon the seas'.

As fas as I know no other civic arms have been used in the country.
