LOOKS LIKE ARMS

In some countries there are official emblems that look like heraldic arms, but although inspired by them, they are not coats of arms.

The American great seal developed from the heraldic heritage of colonial times

The great seal of the
State of New York that
is on its flag derives
from true heraldic arms.




The state and town emblems of Israel
may look like coats of arms, but it is
only an artistic influence, as heraldry
was never a part of the Israeli culture.
