Coat of arms of the country Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.
The Hessian coat of arms shows in the blue shield a 9 times silver and red divided rising lion with golden claws. On the shield rests a thread of golden foliage with fruits formed by blue pearls. The Hessian coat of arms is protected as a symbol of the state's sovereignty and may only be used by the state organs of the state of Hesse. Use for scientific, teaching or collectors' purposes is permitted and does not require separate permission. Since it has been shown that there is a need to express the connection with the Land of Hesse by using a symbol, the "Hessen sign" was created in 1981. It consists of the slightly modified and stylized coat of arms figure of the lion and can be used by anyone in the national colors white or red. The Hessen sign is available as a free download on the website of the Hessian Ministry of the Interior and for sport.
