The Coat of Arms of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a symbol of the French archipelago located off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. The Coat of Arms was officially adopted on February 22, 1982, and it features a shield with three gold towers on a blue background. The towers represent the three main islands of the archipelago: Saint Pierre, Miquelon, and Langlade. The blue background represents the sea that surrounds the islands.
Above the shield is a gold mural crown, which is a symbol of the French Republic. The crown has five turrets, which represent the five continents of the world. The crown is also adorned with a red ribbon, which bears the motto of Saint Pierre and Miquelon: “Joie de Vivre” (Joy of Living).
On either side of the shield are two green branches of oak and laurel, which represent strength and victory. The branches are tied together with a red ribbon, which symbolizes the blood shed by the French soldiers who fought for the islands during World War II.
The Coat of Arms of Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a proud symbol of the islands’ French heritage and their unique culture. It is a reminder of the islands’ history and the sacrifices made by the French soldiers who defended them. The Coat of Arms is displayed on the flag of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, which is a tricolor of blue, white, and red, and it is also used on official documents and government buildings.
