[ the history of puerto rico ]                                                                                                                                                     spanish version

The coat of arms of Puerto Rico was first granted by the Spanish Crown in 1511, making it the oldest heraldic achievement still currently in use in the Americas.  The territory was ceded by Spain to the United States in accordance to the peace treaty that ended the Spanish-American War in 1899, after which two interim arms were adopted briefly. A law was passed in 1905 that re-established the historical armorial bearings as the arms of the territory; after numerous investigations and amendments, the current version was adopted in 1976.
