The national coat of arms of New Eiffel is the heraldic symbol representing the small European micronation of New Eiffel. It was adopted on 4 March 2019. The committee that created it, the Society of Arms, was headed by Grand Marshal Cameron I, who had created it after being commissioned by the prince of New Eiffel a day prior.

At the top of the emblem is a golden crown on top of a knight helmet. (representing the monarchy of New Eiffel). At the centre of the emblem is a half-white half-green shield bearing a yellow circle (meant to be the sun) and Jesus Christ (representing Christianity, the most prominent religion in New Eiffel), supported by two foxes (representing the national animal of New Eiffel); below them is a green Latin Cross, below that is a grey ribbon in front of a bush inscribed with black text in English, which reads "Aspire to inspire, before we expire", the national motto.

While the use of the coat of arms is restricted to the government, the symbol enjoys wide use on state decorations and official treaties, and appears on the cover of the proposed national passport.
