The Lithuanian coat of arms is set on a red shield. It features a white and blue knight riding a horse, while carrying a sword and shield. This symbol is known as Vytis, or “the chaser”. It is one of the oldest coat of arms of any European country.
The Lithuanian Coat of Arms has a symbol of a knight dating back to 1366, where it was found on the Grand Duke of Lithuania’s seal. It has also been found on many coins. It may symbolize the God of Thunder or the God of War. It was adopted in 1991 in it’s current form.
