The Coat of arms of South Australia is the official symbol of the state of South Australia. It was granted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 19 April 1984. They replaced a coat of arms granted to the State in 1936 by King Edward VIII.
The shield has the Piping Shrike within a golden disc (officially said to represent the rising sun) on a blue background. The Piping Shrike is the unofficial bird emblem of South Australia and also appears on the State Badge. The crest is the Sturt's desert pea, the floral emblem of South Australia, on top of a wreath of the State colors. The coat of arms has no supporters. The compartment, or base, is a grassland with symbols of agriculture and industry, and a motto with the name "South Australia".
