The Benin coat of arms was used originally in 1975, but was adopted again in 1990. A shield in the middle is supported by two leopards on each side. Two horns with corn and sand are located above the shield, which symbolize prosperity. Below the shield, a ribbon with the country’s motto written out in French is located. It means “Fellowship, Justice, Work”.
The shield on the Benin coat of arms is broken into four parts. They show a star, castle, ship, and palm tree.
