Coat of arms of French Polynesia

The Coat of arms of French Polynesia consists of an outrigger depicted in a disc over a stylized emblem of sun and sea; this is very similar to other arms in the region, for example the Coat of arms of Kiribati.

The five asterisks represents the five Archipelagos: the Society Islands, the Tuamotus archipelago, the Gambier Islands, the Austral Islands and the Marquesas.
