The coat of arms of Nauru is a rich representation of the nation's history, culture, and natural resources. The divided shield embodies various elements central to Nauruan identity. The upper section displays the alchemical symbol of phosphorus, reflecting the significance of phosphate mining to the nation's economy, set against a golden-woven background representing the people of Nauru. In the lower silver section, a black frigatebird perches over blue ocean waves, symbolizing the unique fauna and the island's close connection to the sea. Adjacent to this, a branch of calophyllum flowers in the blue section signifies the rich flora of the region. Encircling the shield are images of tribal chief gear, including ropes from palm leaves, frigatebird feathers, and shark teeth, highlighting the cultural traditions and ceremonial significance. The star from the flag above the shield signifies unity and national pride, while the Nauruan name "Naoero" on the ribbon above it reinforces the island's cultural identity. Below the shield, the national motto "God's Will First" emphasizes Nauru's commitment to spiritual values and divine guidance. This coat of arms thus stands as a powerful emblem of Nauru's heritage, natural wealth, and cultural resilience.
