The Coat of Arms of the Czech Republic (Czech: Státní znak České republiky) displays the three historical regions which make up the nation.

The arms of Bohemia show a silver double-tailed lion on a red background1. It is repeated in the lower-left-hand side of the coat of arms (from the perspective of the person holding the shield). The Moravian red-and-silver chequered eagle is shown on a blue background. The arms of Silesia are a black eagle with the so-called "clover stalk" in her breast on a golden background, although only a small south-eastern part of the historical region of Silesia now belongs to the Czech Republic (see Czech Silesia).

The shield is also used as the badge for the Czech national football team and Czech national ice hockey team.

1 Blazoned as gules, a lion rampant, queue fourchee argent, crowned, langued and armed or.
