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.
