National Coat of Arms of Bermuda

Arms of Bermuda

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 4, 1910.

The arms show the British lion over the Sea Venture, the ship that discovered Bermuda in 1609.

Even though the arms were officially granted in 1910, they have been used already since the early 17th century, as shown below by an image of a book describing the islands from 1624.
