Coats of Arms of the Istalian Armed ForcesEdit

The Istalian Armed Forces (excluded the National Gendarmerie) adopted in the 4161 a new seires of coats of arms based on the same scheme for all the Armed Forces: a modern selucian shield divided into sections by a central rhombus in which there is the symbol of the armed force while shield and sections are golden bordered. The triangular sections in the upper quarters present the tipically istalian colours (green at left and red at right). Then each Force have its own different features. The field of the rhombus in fact is red with an inflamed gold granate for the Army, Deep Blue with a sea anchor for the Navy and Deep Blue Sky with an eagle for the Air Force. The lower section of the shield is military green for the Army, Light Sea Blue for the Navy and Pale Blue for the Air Force. Finally, above the shields there are a mural crown for the Army, a Naval Crown for the Navy, ans an eagle underneath a mural crown for the Air force. The National Gendarmery instead adopted a modernized version of its historical coat of arms which is a valruzian shield golden bordered divided orizontally in two field by a golden arch: the highest one present a white cross on a red field with in the first and four quadrants an inflamed gold grenade ans in the second and third quadrants a silver hand wielding a green snake; the lower fiels is also horizontally divided, blu at the top and red at the bottom, with in the middle a bigger inflamed gold grenade, symbol of the National Gendarmerie.
