The seal of the Federated States of Micronesia showcases a simple yet meaningful representation of the nation's essence. At its core, the seal features a sprouted coconut floating in the ocean, a poignant symbol that pays homage to the region's main product, the coconut. This image conveys the profound connection between the Micronesian people and their natural surroundings, where many islands in the Pacific are beautifully adorned with palm trees sprouting coconuts that drift ashore. In essence, the seal embodies the resilient spirit and deep-rooted relationship between the people of Micronesia and their abundant island environment.
