St Vincent and the Grenadines Coat of Arms:
The coat of arms of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is surmounted by a cotton plant and bears the words "Peace and Justice" in Latin.
The centerpiece is based on the colonial badge in use from 1907 to 1979 and features two women in classical Roman dress. The one on the left stands holding an olive branch, and the one on the right holds scales of justice and kneels before the gold altar between them.
