Tristan da Cunha formerly used the coat of arms of Saint Helena

The coat of arms of Tristan da Cunha was granted on 20 October 2002.[1]

Arms

The arms consist of a shield featuring four albatrosses in a blue-and-white mirror image design. The central diamond-shaped charge is based on a charge from the arms of the da Cunha family to which Admiral Tristão da Cunha belonged, after whom the island is named: "cunha" in Portuguese means "wedge", and blue wedges feature in the da Cunha arms as a canting charge.[2] The two supporters are Tristan rock lobsters, which are found in the waters surrounding the island. The crest features a naval crown and a Tristan da Cunha longboat.[2]

The motto is “Our faith is our strength”.[2]

Flag

The arms feature on the flag of Tristan da Cunha, granted on the same date as the arms, and on the defaced Union Flag used by the Administrator.[1]

Previous arms

Prior to 2002, as a dependency of Saint Helena, Tristan da Cunha used their coat of arms.[1]
