    St Kitts and Nevis coat of arms

  • Coat of Arms: The Saint Kitts and Nevis Coat of Arms displays the motto "Country Above Self". The center of the coat of arms is dominated by a shield, at the base of which is a ship.

    Above that is a red chevron highlighted by two poinciana flowers, and at the top of the shield is the head of a Carib indian. Around the Carib indian is the fleur-de-lis and a rose. The Caribs were the early inhabitants of the islands, and the fleur-de-lis and rose signify the English and the French influences.

    A helmet topped with a tower appears with a flaming torch upheld by the hands of an African, European, and a person of mixed descent. The torch signifies the struggle and quest for freedom by a people of diverse ethnic origins, but united in purpose. The shield is supported on either side by pelicans, displaying a sugar cane plant and the coconut palm tree - which are extensively cultivated throughout Saint Kitts and Nevis.
