Coat Of Arms Of Chile Por La Razón O La Fuerza "By reason or force" Plastic Home Office Wall Decor Sign
The coat of arms of Chile dates from 1834 and was designed by the English artist Charles Wood Taylor (1792–1856). It is made up of a figurative background divided into two equal parts: the top one is blue and the bottom, red. A five-pointed white star is in the center of the shield. This background is supported in one side by a condor, the most significant bird of prey from the Andes, and in the other, by a huemul, a mammal endemic to Chile who symbolizes the quadruped of dark brown fur that lives in the south of the Andes. As this animal is a species that can be found only in Chile and in the extreme south of Argentina when it appears on the national coat of arms, this animal represents "reason". On the other hand, the condor is one of the strongest that flies over the national skies. It represents "force". In the national coat of arms, both animals wear a crown. This symbolizes the naval triumph of the maritime troops in the battles for Independence.
