The great state coat of arms of the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

– founded in 1826 –


Explanation and Description

A purple cloak, lined with ermine and with the royal crown at its crest, envelops the coat of arms; the shield is supported by two lions, likewise adorned with crown of the sovereign.

The coat of arms is blazoned with a shield, which is divided three times perpendicularly and four times horizontally.  In addition, there is a shield in the centre and the base is also divided into two sections, where the emblem of the lion is once again portrayed.

The individual quarterings, marshalled on the coat of arms, are explained by hovering over each section using your mouse or by tapping on a mobile device.
