Coat of Arms of Somalia
Somalia / Silver Ounce 2009 African Wildlife - Elephant

The Coat of Arms of Somalia was adopted on October 10, 1956 and was created by an unknown Somali man. The cheetahs which support the shield and the white star were also found on the coat of arms used in Italian Somaliland. Formerly, the arms of Somalia from June 8, 1919 featured a shield divided horizontally by a wavy white line. The top half of the shield was blue, with a cheetah in natural colour surmounted by a white five-pointed star. Cheetahs are a common motif in Somali culture.

The Constitution of Somalia describes the Coat of Arms of the nation as follows:

The emblem of the Federal Republic of Somalia [...] is a blue shield with a gold frame, in the centre of which is a silver-coated, five-pointed star. The shield is surmounted by a decorated emblem with five golden heads, with two lateral ones halved. The shield is borne from the sides by two cheetahs facing each other under the lower point of the shield, along with two palm leaves, which are interlaced with a white ribbon.
