Belize Defense Force
The Motto is "Shoulder-To-Shoulder"
It depicts unity within the organization. This means the BDF soldiers work and play together as a team. The Emblem, which is also the design for the Cap Badge and is also depicted on the Force Flag, is comprised of the mahogany tree with a crossed rifle and axe. The 'Mahogany Tree' represents Belize and its people, the 'Rifle' signifies the Defence of the Country and the 'Axe' represents Aid to Civil Power.
The Belize Defence Force is charged with the Defence of Belize; the support of the Civil Authorities in the Maintenance of Order in Belize; and such other duties as may from time to time be defined by the Governor-General.See more
