Coat of arms of the Falkland Islands.

The coat of arms of the Falkland Islands was granted to the Falkland Islands on September 29, 1948.

The ship represents the Desire, the vessel in which the English sea-captain, John Davis, is reputed to have discovered the Falkland Islands in 1592.

The motto "Desire the Right" also refers to the ship's name.

The ram represents sheep-farming, until recently the principal economic activity of the islands. The tussock grass shows the most notable native vegetation.
