The arms show a tobacco plant as an obvious symbol. The crest holding a pipe is another clear reference to the company. The two supporters are eagles rising from the flames of burning tobacco leaves to symbolise the several reincarnations of the Company.

The motto means Out of the Earth.

The arms replaced the previous arms, granted in 1956, see below.

The previous arms were officially granted on November 8, 1956.
