Coat of arms of Haiti

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The first coat of arms of Haiti was created in 1807, and has appeared in its current form since 1986.

It has a palm, with several flags at its sides, and two cannons on a green lawn. On the lawn there are several objects, such as musical instruments (a snare drum and bugles), guns, and ship anchors. Above the palm tree, there is a Phrygian cap placed as a symbol of freedom.

The ribbon on the bottom displays the national motto: L'Union Fait La Force (French for "Union Makes Strength").
