Coat Of Arms Of Kuwait

The Coat of arms of Kuwait (Arabic: شعار الكويت‎) was adopted in 1962 and it consists of the shield of the flag design in color superimposed on a falcon with wings displayed. The falcon supports a disk containing a sailing ship (dhow) with the full name of the State written (in Arabic) at the top of the disk.

The dhow is a symbol of the maritime tradition of the country and is also found in the national coats of arms of Qatar. The falcon is a symbol of the Banu Quraish line, to which the prophet Muhammad belonged and is likewise found in many coats of arms of the Arabian Peninsula.

The coat of arms replaced an older emblem with a falcon and two crossed flags.
