KOPER

Arms of Koper

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on January 18, 1997.

The arms with the sun have been used at least since the 19th century. The meaning I do not know.

In the mid 19th century the arms showed a Medusa head, which may either be the original arms (from which the sun was derived), or a misinterpretation of the sun.

In the late 1980s and until 1997 the city used a different design, shown below.
