English: Coat of Arms of New Zealand (1956-Present)
  • The Coat of Arms depict a shield with four quadrants divided by a central "pale". The first quadrant depicts the four stars on the flag of New Zealand; the second quadrant depicts a golden fleece, representing the nation's farming industry; the third depicts a sheaf of wheat for agriculture; and the fourth quadrant depicts crossed hammers for mining. The central pale depicts three galleys, representing New Zealand's maritime nature and also the Cook Strait. The Dexter supporter is a European woman carrying the flag of New Zealand, while the Sinister supporter is a Maori Warrior holding a Taiaha (Fighting weapon) and wearing a Kaitaka (flax cloak). The Shield is topped by the Crown of St. Edward, the Monarch of New Zealand's Crown. Below is a scroll with "New Zealand" on it, behind which (constituting the "heraldic compartment" on which the supporters stand) are two fern branches.
Deutsch: Staatswappen Neuseelands (seit 1956).
  • Das Staatswappen zeigt einen in Blau und Rot gevierten Schild mit einem silbernen Pfahl. Es zeigt im blauen ersten Feld das Kreuz des Südens (Southern Cross) mit silbergeränderten fünfzackigen Sternen als Symbol des Staates und im blauen vierten Feld goldene Bergmannswerkzeuge, Symbole für Landwirtschaft, Viehzucht und Bergbau, sowie ein Goldenes Vlies im roten zweiten Feld und im dritten Feld in Rot eine goldene Korngarbe. Die drei schwarzen nach links fahrende Segelschiffe mit ausliegenden Rudern im Pfahl stehen für die Bedeutung des Seehandels und für die Besiedlung Neuseelands vom Meer her. Der Wappenschild wird rechts, von einer weißen Frau mit der Flagge Neuseelands in der Hand, Symbol für die europäischen Einwanderer, und links von einem tätowiertem Māori im traditionellen Gewand, dem Kaitaka aus neuseeländischem Flachs, und mit einem Taiaha, einer langen Kampfkeule, in der Hand, Symbol für die Ureinwohner, als Schildhalter gehalten. Beide stehen auf Zweigen des Silberfarns, der Nationalpflanze. Darüber liegt ein silbernes Band mit dem Staatsnamen „NEW ZEALAND“. Über dem Wappenschild schwebt die britische Edwardskrone als Versinnbildlichung der formalen britischen Oberherrschaft.
