Coat of arms of Puerto Rico

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coat of Arms of Puerto Rico
Coat of Arms of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.svg
Coat of Arms of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Variant).svg
Armiger Commonwealth of Puerto Rico
Adopted 1976 (1511 & 1905)
Motto Joannes Est Nomen EjusLatin"John is his name".

The Coat of Arms of Puerto Rico was first granted by the Spanish Crown in 1511, making it the
oldest heraldic achievement still currently in use in the Americas.[1] The territory was ceded by
Spain to the United States in accordance to the peace treaty that ended the Spanish-American War
 in 1899, after which two interim arms were adopted briefly. A law was passed in 1905 that
re-established the historical armorial bearings as the arms of the territory; after numerous
investigations and amendments, the current version was adopted in 1976.




Christopher Columbus arriving in the New World carrying a banner with the initials ofFerdinand II and Isabella I.

The major symbolism of the coat of arms relates to the
dominance of Spain, the strong Roman Catholic influence
in the region, and the integrity of Puerto Rico as a colony of
Spain. There have been different variations of the coat of
arms changing throughout Puerto Rico's history. The current
version was officially re-adopted by the Commonwealth
government of Puerto Rico in 3 June 1976.

On the shield:

[edit]Great Seal

All of the states and territories of the United States employ a seal to authenticate and ratify documents
and accordingly a seal of Puerto Rico exists, but the traditional coat of arms is used as the main emblem
of the commonwealth. The seal has most of the elements of the coat of arms, but the religious elements
have been stripped away. In the seal, the lamb, which no longer has a halo, carries a white banner
instead of one with a red cross. The lamb's staff does not have the cross mounted on top. The book
the lamb sits on does not have the seals of the Book of Revelation. The first Governors used the seal
as their emblem but in recent years the usage of the seal has been limited to being the official emblem
used to represent Puerto Rico on its legal documents when they are sealed.
