The Royal Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Atovia are the symbols used to represent the monarch, the people, and the culture of the Atovia. There are two versions: the Greater (Royal) version and the Lesser (State) version. The whole arms were made by King Connor I to replace the national seal.

History

The original national seal of Atovia.

The first version of the coat of arms was designed by King Connor I at the same time as the flag, on 19 May 2017. The second and current set of arms was designed on 20 May 2018 to better represent the nation and people. This set of arms has been improved gradually since then with minor changes.

Purpose

The Greater Coat of Arms is used to represent the monarch of Atovia exclusively. It is not to be used for any other purpose. The Lesser Coat of Arms is used for state documents, embassies, passports, and other official purposes.

Blazon

The official blazon of the coat of arms is as follows:

Per bend Azure and Gules, a bend Argent, in the chief a crown Or and in the base three acorns of the same inverted in bend.
