The Hungarian coat of arms was officially adopted on July 3, 1990 after the fall of communism. It dates back to the Middle Ages. It features a shield split into two sections.
The Hungarian Coat of Arms features a double cross on its right side. It is located inside of a crown that rests on three hills. The left side is the Arpad stripes. These are four red and four white stripes. These are thought to represent the Tisza, Szava, Drava, and Duna Rivers.
The double cross is the oldest element on the Hungarian coat of arms, and may an emblem of the apostolic Kingdom of Hungary. Others believe it came from Cyrill and Method. Others believe it is a Byzantine symbol.
