US VIRGIN ISLANDS

Arms of US Virgin Islands

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The US Virgin Islands do not use a coat of arms, but only the above seal.

The seal of the United States Virgin Islands features the three-island design of the main islands of Saint Croix, Saint John and Saint Thomas, often seen throughout the territory.

The seal replaces an earlier seal similar to the flag of the United States Virgin Islands, which was based on the central design of the Great Seal of the United States. The seal also contains the flag of the United States and also the flag of Denmark to symbolise its former status as a Danish colony before 1917.
