The coat of arms of Northern Cyprus are styled closely on the arms of the Republic of Cyprus, except that the '1960' was removed from the shield underneath the dove and the addition, a depiction of the Turkish star and crescent emblem is placed over the shield with the year '1983' added. The year is in reference to the Declaration of Independence of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

In late 2007, a slight change to the layout of the arms was made. The dove is in a different position/attitude.
