The Suriname coat of arms was adopted in November of 1975. It depicts two natives holding an oval shield. A banner below the shield has the Latin motto, which reads “Justitia, Pietas, Fides”. This means “Justice, Piety, and Loyalty”. The left part of the Suriname coat of arms features a ship (representing the fact that slaves were taken from Africa). The right part depicts a Royal Palm.
A green diamond is located in the middle. The corners represent the direction of the wind. A five-pointed yellow star is located inside of the diamond. The points if the star on the Suriname coat of arms stand for the five continents people came to the country from: Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and America.
