Gabon's coat of arms was adopted on July 15, 1963, and is composed of two panthers supporting a shield. The okoume tree is a symbol of timber trade, the panthers are for vigilance and courage, and the image on the shield represents moving towards a brighter future.

The ribbon below the shield displays the national motto in French, "Union, Travail, Justice" ("Union, Work, Justice"); the ribbon above the shield reads in Latin: "Uniti Progrediemur" ("We shall go forward united").
