    Haiti coat of arms

  • Coat of Arms: The coat of arms of Haiti shows six draped flags of the country, three on each side, which are located in front of a palm tree and cannons.

    In front of the cannons are a drum, a bugle, long guns, and ship anchors. Above the palm tree, there is a Phrygian cap placed as a symbol of freedom.

    Just above the ribbon with the motto are two pieces of chain with a broken link symbolizing the broken chain of slavery. On the ribbon is the national motto of Haiti "L'Union Fait La Force" which means "Union Makes Strength".
