The coat of arms of Rhode Island is an official emblem of the state,[1] alongside the seal and state flag. The blazon (description) was officially adopted by the General Assembly in 1881, to be effective 1 February 1882.

The arms are described legally as “The arms of the state are a golden anchor on a blue field, and the motto thereof is the word ‘Hope’”.

Use[edit]

Besides being used by itself, the coat of arms of Rhode Island is used on the standard (flag) of the Governor of Rhode Island, and many governmental seals of the state.
