- Coat of Arms: The coat of arms has been in use in its current form since 15 September 1912. Its center consists of a triangle, in which five volcanoes rise out of the sea. They symbolize the five member states of the United Provinces of Central America. Above the volcanoes is a red Phrygian cap on a staff before a golden sun and the date 15 September 1821 - Independence Day of El Salvador. A rainbow is above.
Behind the coat of arms there are five raised flags representing the flags of the Federal Republic of Central America. Under the flags, there is a scroll with the national motto. All of this is surrounded by a laurel garland, which is tied together under the national flag. The garland is divided into 14 different parts, which symbolize the 14 Departments, the Salvadoran subnational administrative units.
