The coat of arms of Guyana is a rich emblem reflecting the nation's cultural heritage and key industries. It features a crest resembling an Amerindian headdress, representing the indigenous people, also known as the Cacique's Crown, flanked by two diamonds symbolizing the mining industry. Two jaguars act as supporters, grasping a pickaxe, sugar cane, and a stalk of rice, which symbolize the country's agriculture and mining. The shield displays the Victoria Amazonica lily, the national flower, while three blue wavy lines represent the country's main rivers. The Canje Pheasant, the national bird, is also depicted. The national motto, "One people, One nation, One destiny," appears on a ribbon beneath the shield, encapsulating the unity and shared aspirations of the Guyanese people.
