Coat of arms of Slovenia Details Armiger Republic of Slovenia Adopted 1991
The Slovenian coat of arms consists of a red bordered blue shield on which there is a stylised white mount Triglav.

Kingdom of Yugoslavia: Until the dissolution of Austria-Hungary, Slovene lands did not have a coat of arms representing the whole nation, instead it had a different coat of arms for every land. When the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs merged with Kingdom of Serbia, Slovenia got the first real coat of arms, which actually was a heavily modified one from the Serbian Kingdom. The coat of arms presents the Serbian shield with white cross on the left, the Croatian shield on the right and under both there is a blue shield presenting Slovenes.
Socialist Republic of Slovenia: The sea and the mount Triglav motive appeared in the coat of arms of the Socialist Republic of Slovenia, one of six constituent republics of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The former coat of arms was rounded by wheat with linden leaves and featured a red star at the top. There was also the other coat of arms which presented Yugoslavia as a whole. The new coat of arms was then designed by Marko Pogačnik.
