Culture • History • Community

On 14th May 2018, we commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the conferral of the Cayman Islands’ Coat of Arms by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. When examining the history of the Cayman Islands … the grant of the Coat of Arms represents the seminal moment that started the chain of events that placed the Cayman Islands on the path to modernity.

The Coat of Arms is the Cayman Islands’ first internationally recognised symbol of identity. Its rich imagery tells the story of who we are, our history, our culture, our earliest industries, our constitutional relationship, and our faith.

- Hon. Alden McLaughlin, MBE, JP
Premier of the Cayman Islands
