The Jamaican national motto is 'Out of Many One People', based on the population's multiracial roots.

The motto is represented on the Coat of Arms, showing a male and female member of the Taino tribe standing on either side of a shield which bears a red cross with five golden pineapples.

Today, the Jamaican Coat of Arms appears on every single piece of our bank notes and coins as well as on all national documents.  It is also used, in many respects, as the final seal of governmental approval.


Jamaican Ice hockey style represents the Coat of Arms to the fullest.
