The coat of arms of Costa Rica is beautiful and elaborate, it was created in 1848 and includes seven stars representing the seven provinces of Costa Rica: Guanacaste, Puntarenas, Heredia, Alajuela, Limón, San José and Cartago.
We can also see three volcano peaks, the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, a rising sun at the background that shows prosperity, a merchant ship to represent the exchange that Costa Rica does with the rest of the world, two branches of myrtle for peace and two banners, the blue one says ” América Central” and the white one says ” República de Costa Rica”.
