The coat of arms of Colombia is a complex and symbolically rich design. The vulture with an olive crown symbolizes freedom and the nation's soaring spirit, while the sailing ships represent Colombia's maritime history and its connection to the world. The pomegranate signifies the historical Viceroyalty of New Granada, which was part of the Spanish colonial era. The Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom, is a powerful representation of Colombia's pursuit of independence and sovereignty. The presence of golden coins and fruits poured from horns symbolizes abundance and the country's rich natural resources.
