|Coat of arms of the Dominican Republic|
Waisai, 999-logo.blogspot.com - The coat of arms of the Dominican Republic features a shield in similarly quartered colors as the flag, supported by a bay laurel branch (left) and a palm frond (right); above the shield, a blue ribbon displays the national motto: Dios, Patria, Libertad (God, Homeland, Liberty). Below the shield, the words República Dominicana appear on a red ribbon. In the center of the shield, flanked by six spears (three on each side), the front four holding the national flag, is a Bible with a small golden cross above it.
The constitution dictates that the Bible be opened to the John 8:32, which reads "Y la verdad os hará libre" (full verse: "[And ye shall know the truth], [A]nd the truth shall make you free"). [Coat of arms of the Dominican Republic| Lleva en el centro la Biblia abierta en el Evangelio de San Juan, capítulo 8, versículo 32,]
