The coat of arms of Chiapas is a shield dominated by a red field. The shield shows two cliffs, between which a river flows. This river represents the state's main river, the Grijalva, also known locally as Chiapa River. On top of the cliff on the left side is golden castle with a golden lion rampant; on the right-hand cliff there is a green palm tree, also with a golden rampant lion.
