Coat of Arms: The official coat of arms of New South Wales was granted by a Royal Warrant of King Edward VII on October 11, 1906.
The coat of arms is composed of a lion and kangaroo supporting
a shield with a silver cross voided red. The four quadrants outside the
cross contain a wheat sheaf in the top left and bottom right, and a
golden fleece in the top right and bottom left quarters. The crest of
the arms depicts a rising sun, and the state motto is displayed on a
ribbon below, "Orta recens quam pura nites" ("Newly risen, how brightly you shine").
