GRB Macedonia

The Coat of Arms of Republic of Macedonia has undergone several revisions – in 1946 when the Coat of Arms of the People’s Republic of Macedonia was replaced and on 16th November 2009 with the removal of the red star. Thus, the National Emblem assumed its present look.
The Macedonian Coat of Arms is one of the two in Europe that has landscape features. The Coat of Arms of Republic of Macedonia represents a field surrounded with two wheat garlands meeting on the top, enriched with opium poppies and tobacco leaves that on the lower part are tied with a ribbon decorated with traditional Macedonian folk motives.
In the middle of the field there is an outline of mountain with a river at its foot, and behind the mountain a sunrise is depicted.
