The coat of arms of Trinidad and Tobago on a waving white flag
The coat of arms of Trinidad and Tobago is a rich and intricate emblem with deep symbolism, reflecting the nation's history and identity. The shield features the same colors and the same meanings as the national flag. The golden ships pay homage to Christopher Columbus's voyage to the region. Two hummingbirds, symbolizing the rich birdlife of Trinidad, signify the island's Amerindian name, the "Land of the Hummingbird." The larger birds on the sides of the shield, the Scarlet Ibis and the Cocrico, are the national birds of Trinidad and Tobago. The three hills below the Scarlet Ibis represent the Trinity Hills in southern Trinidad, a factor in Columbus naming the island. The island emerging from the waters below the Cocrico represents Tobago. The nation's motto, "Together We Aspire, Together We Achieve," reflects the collective aspirations and goals of the Trinidad and Tobago people. The coat of arms eloquently portrays the nation's history, cultural richness, and aspirations for unity and progress.
