The Ghana coat of arms was adopted on March 4th, 1957. Two golden eagles, who have the national colors around their neck, support a central shield. This shield is divided into four sections by a green St. Georgeís cross. A yellow lion is located in the middle of this cross, which symbolizes the nationís relationship with the United Kingdom.
The upper left part depicts a sword, which is used in ceremonies. The upper right section features a castle on the sea, which stands for the national government. The bottom left section of the Ghana coat of arms features a cacao tree, which represents the countryís rich agriculture. A gold mine is drawn in the lower right section of the Ghana coat of arms, which represents the nationís wealth of natural minerals.
