The Italy coat of arms was officially adopted on May 2nd, 1948. As it was not designed according to the rules of heraldry, it is an emblem and not a coat of arms.
The Italy Coat of Arms features a five-pointed white star outlined in red. This is set on top of a cogwheel. An oak branch and an olive branch adorn each side. They are connected by a red banner that says “REPVBBLICA ITALIANA” in large white letters.
Elements of the House of Savoy’s coat of arms were used in previous versions. The Italy coat of arms in its current form was designed by Paolo Paschetto. The oak symbolizes dignity and strength.
