The coat of arms of Bolivia.

The central cartouche has a border with nine stars in the bottom, which symbolize the nine Departamentos. Within the border the silver mountain Potosí — recognized by a mine entrance — is depicted, with Inti in form of a sun rising above it, and with an alpaca standing next to a palm tree and some wheat. The alpaca stands on a plain that contrasts with the mountain. The mountain and its contrast with the plains are indicative of the geography of Bolivia. The llama is the national animal, related to the alpaca and the items next to it are symbolic of the resources of the nation.
