Here is a historical Coat of Arms, the first one Panama City
had had. The City was refounded again on August 19, 1519 by Pedro
Arias de Dávila (known as Pedrarias Dávila) and by Real Cédula
issued on December 7, 1519 (other sources claim September 15,
1521), the Spanish King Carlos V granted this city its arms, with
the motto "In nómine meo foveat me" (Help me on my own
behalf, or help me for my own sake).
