English: The creation of the coat of arms of Honduras was on October 3, 1825. Dionisio Herrera, as the Head of the State of Honduras, decreed Through his initiative, Honduras acquired its own national shield, one which represents Honduran history and the rich variety of national resources that it possesses and which should be protected and conserved. The National Congress thereby declared in its decree # 16 and article 142, designated the shield as a national symbol for all uses, in a clear and general manner. The National Congress approved this in Tegucigalpa on January 10, 1935. [1]

The National Congress decrees:

Article 1 - The National Coat-of-Arms that shall be used is a equilateral triangle. On its base a volcano between two castles, over them is the rainbow and below it [and] behind the volcano a sun rises spreading light. The triangle [is] placed over land which appears to be bathed by both seas [Atlantic and Pacific]. Around it an oval containing in gold lettering: "REPUBLICA DE HONDURAS, LIBRE, SOBERANA E INDEPENDIENTE. 15 DE SEPTIEMBRE DE 1821" [Republic of Honduras, Free, Sovereign and Independent. 15th September 1821] On the top part of the oval there is a quiver full of arrows from which hang horns of plenty joined with a knot resting over a mountain range from which clearly stand three oaktrees on the right handside and three pinetrees on the left, and the mines, a bar, a drill, a wedge, a sledgehammer and a hammer [all] distributed as appropriate.
