House of Assembly members seemed to agree on that clause in the bill which this time around defines and describes what is the correct Turks and Caicos Coat of Arms.During debate on the Flag and Coat of Arms bill today, it was determined that the pelican standing atop the helmet and crest will remain white, despite it depicting the country’s national bird which is the brown pelican. Black was also added to the color pallet for the design which features black for shadows on the light pink flamingos, on the Turks Head or Fez Cactus and on the helmet.The Flag & Coat of Arms Bill, brought by the Office of the Premier was yesterday passed in parliament. House debate resumes this morning at 10. Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp
