The official motto of Jamaica is, "out of many, one people." This motto can be seen on Jamaica's official coat-of-arms and is based on the multiracial history and roots of its people.
The Jamaican coat-of-arms not only features its official motto, but it also has several other important elements that relate to the history of the country. On either side of a red cross that features five pineapples are male and female Tainos, who were the native tribe of the island.
On top of the cross is a Jamaican crocodile standing on the Royal Helmet of the British Monarchy, which symbolizes Jamaica's history as a British colony.
