Kingdom of Swaziland

untitledBlazon:  The coat of arms for Swaziland depicts various symbols for the tradition and culture of the country. The lion represents the King and the elephant represents the Queen-mother. They support a traditional Nguni shield which represents “protection”. Above the shield is the king’s lidlabe, or crown of feathers, normally worn during the Incwala ceremony (the festival of the harvest). On a banner below the shield is the Swaziland national motto, Siyinqaba, meaning, “We are the fortress”.
