back: Lesser Version of Coat of Arms: Tribal shield with tusk and stalk (Sorghum) on either side

The shape of the shield is that of traditional shields found in East Africa. On the top portion of the shield are three cogwheels that represent industry

The three waves symbolize water, and reminds the viewer of the motto of the nation: pula, which means simply "rain", but also good luck, and is the name of the nation's currency.

At the bottom of the shield is the head of a bull, which symbolizes the importance of cattle herding to Botswana
