Administrative division

Djibouti is sectioned into five regions and one city. It is further subdivided into eleven districts.

The regions and city are:

  • Ali Sabieh Region (Région d'Ali Sabieh)
  • Arta Region (Région d'Arta)
  • Dikhil Region (Région de Dikhil)
  • Djibouti (city) (Ville de Djibouti)
  • Obock Region (Région d'Obock)
  • Tadjourah Region (Région de Tadjourah)

As far as I know none of these uses heraldic arms.

National Symbol of Djibouti

The symbol was adopted on June 25, 1977.

The symbol shows two hands holding each a knife and representing the two ethnic groups in the country, the Afar and Issas.
