Liberia Coat of Arms:
Liberia's coat of arms features a shield displaying a picture of a 19th century ship arriving to the country (a symbol of the freed slaves brought from the United States). Below the shield is the name of the country displayed on a ribbon, and above is the national motto.
Within the shield are several elements, including: a plow and shovel (representing dignity and labor), a rising sun (the birth of a nation), a palm tree (prosperity) and a white dove (for breath of peace).
