The coat of arms of Belize on a waving white flag
The coat of arms of Belize is a rich emblem that represents various aspects of the country's history, culture, and natural resources. It prominently features a shield with depictions of a ship, symbolizing Belize's colonial past, and various woodworking tools that highlight the significance of the timber industry. Two men in two different skin tones, representing Mestizo and Afro-Belizean woodcutters, support the shield, each holding an axe and a paddle, symbolizing the importance of forestry and canoe building. A mahogany tree stands between them, emphasizing the country's abundant timber resources. The Latin motto "Sub Umbra Floreo," displayed on a white ribbon below the shield, means "Under the Shade, I Flourish," underscoring Belize's aspirations and growth. The emblem is encircled by a wreath of 25 leaves, signifying the country's journey and progress.
