Coat of Arms of the Republic of Botswana.

  • The arms is made up of a central tribal shield; the three blue waves represents water, the cogwheels represents industry and the bull's head husbandry and herding. The two supporters are zebras, the dexter zebra holds an ivory tusk which represents wildlife and tourism. The sinister zebra holds an ear of sorghum an important crop in the country. (The 'Zebras' is also the nickname for the national football team.) Finally the white with a black outline ribbon holds the motto "Pula" which means "rain" and "blessing" and is also the name of the currency.
