The coat of arms of Netherlands New Guinea was one of a number of national symbols chosen by the Papuans prior to decolonization by the Netherlands, and prior to integration into Indonesia. The design on the shield was in the form of the flag of Netherlands New Guinea, the Morning Star flag. The shield was supported by two birds of paradise and surrounded by a garland of local flowers and a scroll bearing the motto "Setia, djudjur, Mesra" (Loyal, Honest, Affectionate).
