Coat of arms of Gerenia
|Coat of arms of Gerenia|
|Escutcheon||Blue, charged with a white bend sinister, a pick and a shovel, and an open book.|
The Gerenian coat of arms consists on a blue shield charged with a white bend sinister, a pick and a shovel, and an open book. While blue and white used to be the national colours of Gerenia (the colour red was added in late 2012), the pick and the shovel symbolise "the Nation's struggle", as the open book symbolise the power of knowledge and culture. The left page of the book has eight lines, and represent past history. On the other hand, the right page is blank, for it symbolises "what is yet to come".
The current coat of arms was officially adopted in 5 December 2011, upon foundation of Gerenia.
- An unofficial, yet often used, version of the coat of arms of Gerenia include a laurel wreath, and a seven-pointed star as crest.
- A secondary version of the national coat of arms has two crossed swords. This version has been never used.
