The national coat of arms

The national coat of arms

The national coat of arms is a symbol of the state. State agencies, and bodies and persons exercising state authority have the right to use the national coat of arms. 

The national coat of arms has two forms: the grand national coat of arms and the small national coat of arms. There are three blue lions passant guardant on a golden shield on the grand national coat of arms. The shield is surrounded on the sides and at the base by two golden oak branches which cross at the base of the shield. The small national coat of arms is the same as the coat of arms described above but without the oak branches.
