Coat of arms (crest) of National Arms of Niger
Official blazon

Les armoiries de la République sont composées d'un blazon de sinople à un soleil rayonnant d'or, accosté à dextre d'une lance en pal chargée de deux épées touareg posées en sautoir, et à senestre de trois épis de mil, un en pal et deux posés en sautoir, accompagné en pointe d'une tête de zébu, le tout d'or.

Ce blazon repose sur un trophée formé de quatre drapeaux de la République du Niger. L'inscription "République du Niger" est placée en dessous.


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:
