The coat of arms of San Marino is characterized by a blue shield featuring three green mountains, each crowned with a silver tower adorned with a weather vane in the form of a silver ostrich feather. The three towers symbolize the three historic citadels of San Marino (La Guaita, La Cesta, and La Montale), while the mountains represent the three peaks of Mount Titano. The Latin motto "LIBERTAS" encapsulates the nation's commitment to freedom, possibly reflecting the country's historical refuge for victims of political persecution and its ability to maintain independence despite external pressures. Surrounding the shield, the oak and laurel branches symbolize the stability of the republic and its dedication to safeguarding liberty. At the pinnacle of the coat of arms is a crown, serving as a symbol of sovereignty. Collectively, these elements embody the spirit of independence, resilience, and the enduring legacy of the Republic of San Marino.
