The coat of arms of Seychelles depicts the essence of life on the islands. The shield prominently displays a giant Seychelles tortoise resting on a grassy mound, complemented by a female coconut palm bearing fruits. Emerging from an azure sea, an island and a schooner sailing on the waves signify the nation's maritime heritage and natural beauty. The shield, topped with a helmet adorned with the national colors and a white-tailed tropical bird soaring above, is upheld by two sailfish from the Indo-Pacific. Inscribed beneath the shield is the Latin motto of Seychelles, "Finis coronat opus" (The end crowns the work), encapsulating the spirit of perseverance and accomplishment. This coat of arms encapsulates the Seychellois identity, their connection to nature, and their commitment to progress and excellence.
