    Coat of Arms of Grenada

  • Coat of Arms: The Coat of Arms of Grenada is a shield divided into four parts by a golden cross. In the center of this cross is the Santa Maria, Columbus' ship. A British lion on a red field is shown in the upper left and lower right sections of the shield, with a golden crescent moon out of which a lily grows in the upper right and lower left sections. Above the shield there is a golden crown, topped with a garland of Bougainvillea branches. Within the garland are seven red roses, which stand for the seven communities of Grenada.

    Holding the sign are an armadillo in front of a corn stalk; on the other side a Grenada Dove in front of a banana plant. The base represents grassland mountains and Grenada's Grand Etang Lake. A ribbon displays the national motto: "Ever conscious of God we aspire, build and advance as one people."
