The Coat of Arms of the State of Qatar depicts a variety of meanings and values of different geographical and cultural connotations. It reflects an interactive and harmonious interface between wild and marine lives. It also depicts the palm tree height and its sense of giving, recalling of Arab mightiest swords, the sense of dignity and safe haven.

“We have been plighted by many serious adversities. Yet that has neither weakened our firm will nor stances. We have shown resilience and patience despite catastrophic plights. Yes, our heads are glistening with grey,but our hearts remain fearless.”
From “Ka’bat Almdh’yom”
(“A haven for the oppressed”)
