NATIONAL COAT OF ARMS OF NIGER

Arms of National Arms of Niger

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted on December 1, 1962 and for the last time described in 1999.

The constitution states that the arms are green with a a sun (for the State), surrounded by two traditional Tuareg swords (for the Tuareg and Haussa people) and symbols for agriculture; three pearl millet stalks and a zebu head.

In practice the green shield is hardly used, as the government uses the official seal, which shows the same elements but in gold on silver, or uses a golden shield with black symbols:
