Armiger City of Havana

The coat of arms of Havana, Cuba, consist of three castles that represent the three original main castles which defended the city - namely, the Fuerza Castle, the Morro Castle and the Punta Castle.

Description[edit]

The key represents that Havana was the gateway to the New World of Spanish America. The shield is supported by an oak branch on one side and a laurel wreath on the other. The oak branch symbolizes the strength of the nation; and the laurel wreath: honour and glory. These symbols were meant to represent the rights of man: Equality, Liberty and Fraternity.[1][2]
