From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Serbian eagle is a double-headed (bicephalic) white eagle. The double-headed eagle is a common symbol in heraldry and vexillology, the heads represent the dual sovereignty of the Emperor (secular and religious) and/or dominance of the Byzantine Emperors over both East and West. The Serbs have used the eagle as a symbol since the Byzantine Palaeologos dynasty. The Serbian cross (a Greek cross with 4 cyrillic 'S' standing for: "Only Unity Saves the Serbs") has been used together with the Serbian eagle since at least the 14th century and is used in the contemporary design of the Serbian coat of arms.
