The laughing gull (Leucophaeus atricilla) is a medium-sized gull of North and South America. Named for its laugh-like call, it is an opportunistic omnivore and scavenger. It breeds in large colonies mostly along the Atlantic coast of North America, the Caribbean, and northern South America. The two subspecies are: L. a. megalopterus – which can be seen from southeast Canada down to Central America, and L. a. atricilla which appears from the West Indies to the Venezuelan islands. The laughing gull was long placed in the genus Larus until its present placement in Leucophaeus, which follows the American Ornithologists' Union.
The coat of arms of Barbados was adopted on 14 February 1966 by royal warrant of Queen Elizabeth II. The coat of arms of Barbados was presented by the Queen to the President of the Senate, Sir Grey Massiah. Like other former British possessions in the Caribbean, the coat of arms has a helmet with a national symbol on top, and a shield beneath that is supported by two animals.
The arms were designed by Neville Connell, for many years curator of the Barbados Museum, with artistic assistance by Hilda Ince.
Barbados law puts for the blazon of the coat of arms as follows:
Arms: Or a bearded Fig Tree eradicated in chief two Red Pride of Barbados Flowers proper.
Crest: On a Wreath Or and Gules A dexter Cubit Arm of a Barbadian erect proper the hand grasping two Sugar Canes in saltire proper.
Supporters: On the dexter side a Dolphin and on the sinister side a Pelican proper.
Motto: “ Pride and Industry. ”
5 stars review from Delilah
Perfect, exactly what I was looking for.
These are cute, excellent quality, exactly as described. Completely met my expectations. I needed opening night gifts for a production of 'The Seagull', and these perfectly suited.
A nice coin in great condition.
