Coat of Arms

Coat of Arms of Mauritius
The Coat of Arms was granted to Mauritius by letters patent of King Edward VII at St. James on 25 August, 1906. Its motto evokes the island’s heroic past: ‘Star and Key of the Indian Ocean’.
These Arms were given their presentation under the administration of Sir Cavendish Boyle, K.C.M.G. (1904-1909), together with this motto: “Stella Clavisque Maris Indici”.
