TRISTAN DA CUNHA
The arms were officially granted on ??-??-2002.
The arms consist of a shield, featuring four albatrosses in a blue and white mirror image design. 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.
The blue half diamond in the base is taken from the arms of the Cunha family, which showed nine blue wedges. These can also be seen in the arms of Olhalvo (Portugal), where Tristan da Cunha is buried.
The motto is Our faith is our strength.
