The coat of arms of Peru features a detailed and symbolically rich design. At its center, there's a golden shield, which includes several important elements. A vicuña, a South American camelid, symbolizes the country's unique wildlife and natural wealth. A cinchona tree, renowned for its quinine bark, is also depicted, signifying the valuable medicinal resources found in Peru. In the lower part of the shield, a cornucopia horn overflows with golden coins, representing the nation's agricultural abundance and economic prosperity. Surrounding the shield are two national flags, symbolizing both the national flag and the struggle for Peru's independence. Above the shield, a civil crown made of oak branches signifies honor and dignity. Collectively, these elements embody Peru's rich heritage, natural resources, historical journey to freedom, and its commitment to unity and prosperity.
