The coat of arms of Suriname on a waving white flag
The coat of arms of Suriname depicts two indigenous men with arrows supporting an oval shield. The shield features a trade ship on the water, symbolizing Suriname's colonial past as a source of cash crops and its current engagement in international commerce. The royal palm on the right represents both the country's expansive rainforests and its involvement in agribusiness. A green diamond at the center signifies the mining industry, while the star on the diamond represents the five continents from which Suriname's inhabitants originated. The Latin motto on the red ribbon at the bottom reads "Justitia, Pietas, Fides" (Justice, Piety, Fidelity), reflecting the country's commitment to these values.
