Coat of Arms detail

image by Dov Gutterman, 24 Jun 1999, from stkittsnevis.net

St Kitts also adopted a new Coat of Arms in 1967. This is white with a red chevron, two Poinciana flowers, and a schooner. On a blue chief is the head of a Carib between a fleur-de-lys and an English rose. The supporters are two pelicans, holding a cocoa palm and a sugar cane, and the crest is a torch hold up by a white and a brown arm. The motto is Unity in Trinity.
Santiago Dotor, 24 Nov 1999, quoting from [c2b81], p.52

The centre of the coat of arms is dominated by a shield at the base of which is a lighter in full sail. The lighter is one of the traditional means of transportation. A red chevron is highlighted by two Poinciana flowers.
At the top of the shield on the blue background is the head of a Carib, supported by the fleur-de-lis and a rose. The Caribs were the early inhabitants of the islands, and the fleur-de-lis and rose signify the French and English influences.
A helmet topped with the battlements of a tower appears with a flaming torch upheld by the hands of an African, European, and a person of mixed descent. The torch signifies the struggle and quest for freedom by a people of diverse ethnic origins, but united in purpose.
The shield is supported on either side by pelicans with wings extended, displaying a sugar cane plant and the coconut palm tree, which are extensively cultivated throughout St. Kitts & Nevis.
Our Motto: «Country Above Self»

Blue ensign with the 1967 Coat-of-Arms?

Blue ensign image by António Martins, 16 Jun 2002

The Coat of arms was adopted in February 1967, and on the same month the associate state of St-Kitts Nevis Anguilla was created, with its vertical triband with a tree. I doubt that these arms ever appeared as a badge on a Blue Ensign, but were probably used on the Union Jack of Governor 1967-1983.
