Province : Estuaire
The arms also show a mural crown and has as supporters two heraldic sea lions Or, langued and armed Gules and holding staffs with the national flag of Gabon (a tricolour Gold, Green and Blue). An motto is also included "Libertas Ex Amicitia Nascitur". Unfortunately I have no image of the complete arms. The arms symbolise the geographic location by the sea and the Equator. The chief stands for the peaceful co-operation between the European and Gabonese communities.
The sea-lions are a symbol of the port, the flags carried by them makes clear that Libreville is the capital of the republic.
