The Tongan coat of arms was adopted in 1875. It features a white six-pointed star in the middle (a red cross is inside of this). Four quadrants are located outside of the star. One depicts three swords, which stand for three different dynasties of rulers. Another depicts a dove with an olive branch, taken from the Holy Bible, and is meant to represent peace. Another section has three stars, which stand for the nation’s three groups of islands: Tongatapu, Ha?apai, and Vava?u. The last section on the Tongan coat of arms features a crown, which represents the monarchy.
The bottom of the Tongan coat of arms features a scroll that reads “God and Tonga are my inheritance” written out in the native languade.
