Former Coat of arms of the United Arab Emirates (1973-2008)
Coat of arms of the United Arab Emirates (Since 2008)

The coat of arms of the United Arab Emirates (Arabic: شعار الإمارات العربية المتحدة‎) was officially adopted in 1973. It is similar to the coats of arms of other Arab states. It consists of a golden falcon, unlike other Arab countries which use the hawk emblem of the Qureish branch to which Muhammad belonged. The falcon had a red disk which shows an Arab sailboat in its interior. The disk is surrounded by a chain. The falcon holds with its talons a red parchment bearing the name of the federation.

On March 22 2008, the coat of arms was modified. The main change was that the Arab sailboat was replaced by the UAE flag and seven stars representing the seven Emirates of the federation.[1]
