The Denmark Coat of Arms was first recorded as being on the seal of King Canute VI in 1194. It was modified in 1819. It consists of three blue lions and nine red hearts on a gold background.
The Denmark Coat of Arms has a crown on the shield that is similar to that of King Christian V. The hearts were at one time thought to be sea leaves. The design is similar to that of Estonia’s.
The current form was adopted during the time of King Frederick VI. He proclaimed that the beasts on the Denmark coat of arms were lions, and that the number if hearts should be nine. It is one of the oldest insignias in the world.
