New South Wales Coat of Arms:
Flag of New South Wales

The official coat of arms of New South Wales was granted by a Royal Warrant of King Edward VII on October 11, 1906.

The coat of arms is composed of a lion and kangaroo supporting a shield with a silver cross voided red. The four quadrants outside the cross contain a wheat sheaf in the top left and bottom right, and a golden fleece in the top right and bottom left quarters. The crest of the arms depicts a rising sun, and the state motto is displayed on a ribbon below, "Orta recens quam pura nites" ("Newly risen, how brightly you shine").
