17📸 Chilean coat of arms
19📸Huemul 🛡Coat of arms of Chile:
1- Field of two enamels:
It is very similar to a battle shield and is divided into two segments: the upper blue turkish and the lower red purple, colors that are an attribute of the nature of the country and the character of its inhabitants
2- The five-pointed silver star:
It is the symbol that our natives always showed in their banners.
It appears on the left side. As this animal is a species that can only be found in Chile and in the extreme south of Argentina, it was considered by President José Joaquín Prieto as a symbol of originality and distinction. However, when it appears on the national shield, this animal represents "the reason". 4- The Condor:
It appears on the right side being one of the strongest and most corpulent birds of our skies. This bird represents "strength". 5- Crown:
In the national shield, both animals wear a gold crown. This symbolizes the naval triumph of the maritime troops in the battles for Independence.
Both the condor and the huemul proudly hold the national shield, and with that they become the best natural guardians of our sovereignty.
6- A plume of three feathers of red, white and blue colors, is perched on the top of the shield:
This plume was the symbol of distinction that former Presidents of the Republic wore in their hats.
Underneath, in the supports, there is a tape with the motto "For the reason or the force". This motto has certain similarity with that used during the Old Homeland and that said "By the council or by the sword". The historian Sergio Villalobos explains that the intention of the "patriots" was to mean that Chile advanced in its own autonomist identity, or independence, through reason or the exercise of force if necessary.
