Arms of the Republika Srbija

Arms of Serbia.
Arms of Serbia.

Gules, a bicephalic eagle Argent armed Or, two fleurs-de-lys Or. Overall an escutcheon Gules, a cross Argent between four firesteels Argent. All crowned with a royal crown.

The arms are draped with a crimson (porphyry) mantle embroidered gold, with a golden fringe, tied up with golden braid with tassels of the same, lined with ermine. Above the mantle is a pavilion gules again with nine fleur-de-lis or and crowned with a golden crown.

The arms of Serbia are based on the family arms of the former Obrenović dynasty (adopted in 1882) and features the white bicephalic eagle of the Nemanjić dynasty. An ermine cape of the style once worn by kings is featured in the background. The double-headed eagle has been used since Byzantine era; the Serbian cross has been used since the XII century.
