The coat of arms of Panama on a waving white flag
The coat of arms of Panama is a highly detailed and symbolically rich emblem. Its shield features a crossed sword and rifle, representing the nation's struggle for independence from both Spain and Colombia, and a crossed pickaxe and spade, symbolizing the monumental effort in constructing the Panama Canal, a key element of the country's history and development. The Panama Canal landscape, a central feature, underscores its significance in the nation's identity. Additionally, a horn of plenty signifies the country's wealth and resources, while a winged wheel represents progress and innovation. Above the shield, a harpy eagle, Panama's national bird, holds a white stripe with the words "Pro Mundi Beneficio" (For the Benefit of the World) in its beak, and above the eagle are ten stars, each symbolizing one of the country's ten provinces. This coat of arms beautifully encapsulates Panama's history, achievements, and regional diversity, serving as a powerful emblem of the nation's identity and aspirations.
