Belize Coat of Arms

A description of the national coat of arms of the country of Belize

FROM THE GOVERNMENT OF BELIZE:

The shield of the Coat of Arms is divided into three sections by a vertical line and an inverted V.

The base section represents a ship in full sail on waves of the sea. The two upper sections show tools of the timber industry in Belize: a paddle and a squaring axe in the right section and a saw  and a beating axe in the left section.

Supporting the shield are two woodcutters, the one on the right holding a beating axe over his shoulder in his right hand, and the one on the left holding a paddle over his shoulder in his left hand.

Above the sheild rises a mahogany tree. Below the sheild is the motto scroll. A wreath of leaves encircles the Coat of Arms.

The Coat of Arms embodies an important aspect of the history of Belize, as the mahogany industry formed the basis of our economy in the 18th and 19th centuries.

NATIONAL MOTTO: "Sub Umbra Florero" - These latin words mean, "Under the shade I flourish." Coat of arms description provided courtesy of the Government of Belize
