COAT OF ARMS
OF SAINT LUCIA
The Coat of Arms of Saint Lucia whose motto is
"THE LAND, THE PEOPLE, THE LIGHT"
was designed by Mr. Sydney Bagshaw, and replaces the pre-Independence Coat of
Arms with the Virgilian legend for Port Castries - "Statio Haud Malefida Carinis"-
(a safe anchorage for ships) also designed by Mr. Bagshaw in 1967.
It is representative of the island's cultural heritage, its native fauna and flora, coupled with its
culture and history.
The Charges on the Coat of Arms were chosen to represent the
various peoples who are part of
the nation's heritage:
The Torch - A beacon to light our path
The St.Lucian Parrot (Amazona versicolor) the National Bird
The Motto: " THE LAND, THE PEOPLE, THE LIGHT"
The Coat of Arms of
Saint Lucia is the official Seal
of the Government of Saint Lucia.
It may not be used or reproduced
in any form without
the approval of the Government.
