The coat of arms which Jamaica still uses was first granted in 1661. Adjustments to the achievement in areas outside the shield were made in 1957 and 1962, but the shield (the coat of arms proper) is unaltered. It can be blazoned: Argent, upon a cross gules four pineapples or. Instead of the wording "a cross gules", one could also write "St George's cross". Of all the royal flags (except the so-called Royal Standard), the one for Jamaica is probably based on the oldest coat of arms. And since the Royal Standard in its current form is post-Napoleonic, it could even be said that the Jamaican one is oldest.
