The Costa Rican coat of arms depicts three mountains. On each end, water is located. This represents the nation being surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Two ships are located in each body of water, which represents the nation’s maritime tradition. Seven white stars are located at the top of the Costa Rican coat of arms, which represent the nation’s provinces. The yellow beans on the side represent coffee, which is an important export.
The Costa Rican coat of arms also contains two ribbons on top that say the countries name as well as “America Central”.
