Montserrat is a British overseas territory located in the Leeward Islands, part of the chain of islands called the Lesser Antilles in the West Indies.

Administrative division

Montserrat is divided into three parishes:

  • Saint Anthony Parish
  • Saint Georges Parish
  • Saint Peter Parish

None of these uses arms.

The National Arms of Montserrat

The arms were granted in 1909.

The harp and the female figure are derived from the Irish National Arms, as the early colonists were of Irish descent. The cross symbolises Christianity.
