The Coat of Arms of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is surmounted by a cotton plant and bears the text Pax et justitia in Latin (i.e. Peace and justice). The centerpiece is based on the colonial badge in use from 1907 to 1979 and features two women in classical Roman dress. The one on the heraldic right stands holding an olive branch (peace), and the one on the left holds scales of justice and kneels before a gold altar situated between them (justice). The blue represents the sky and sea; yellow (or gold) represents the sunshine and the warmth of the people; and green the abundant vegetation.
