Coat of arms of the United Arab Emirates

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The coat of arms of the United Arab Emirates was officially adopted in 1973. It is similar to the coats of arms of other Arab states. It consists of a golden hawk, the emblem of the Qureish branch to which Muhammed belonged. The hawk has a red disk which shows an Arab sailboat in its interior. The disk is surrounded by a chain. The hawk holds with its claws a red parchment bearing the inscription of the name of the federation.
