About the Coat of arms

The Jamaican national motto is ‘Out of Many One People’, based on the population’s multiracial roots.

The motto is represented on the Coat of Arms, showing a male and female member of the Taino tribe standing on either side of a shield which bears a red cross with five golden pineapples.

The crest shows a Jamaican crocodile mounted on the Royal Helmet of the British Monarchy and mantling.
