Western Australia Coat of Arms


Western Australia’s coat of arms had its origins in 1829 when British settlers established the Swan River colony. Their successors adopted an unofficial emblem which featured the black swan and the motto, a Latin pun, Cygnis Insignis (Distinguished for Swans). The coat of arms, which now carries no motto, was given official sanction when Queen Elizabeth II granted arms to the state in 1969.
