Arms (crest) of Biafra

Official blazon


The Military Governor of the Eastern Region of Nigeria proclaimed its independence on 30 May 1967. The region became a republic with the name of Biafra. The following years the Nigerian government slowly reconquered the secessionist republic and on 9 January 1970 the Biafran army had to capitulate. Since then the region is a part of Nigeria again. Nowadays it consists of the states of Anambra, Cross River, Imo en Rivers.

The arms are based on those of the Eastern Region.
