The coat of arms of Fiji was granted on July 4, 1908, and is composed of two Fijian warriors supporting a shield divided into four quarters. Three of the shield's four quarters contain crops (sugarcane, coconut palm, bananas) while the remaining quarter shows a dove (representing peace).

A wreath of Argent and Gules and a canoe make up the crest of the arms, and the national motto "Rerevaka na kalou ka doka na Tui" (Fear God and honour the Queen) is displayed on a ribbon below.
