|Di rosso all'alabarda di S. Sergio, d'argento.
The arms were officially granted on July 3, 1930.
Trieste was founded in the 2nd century BC as Tergeste. It belonged to Austria from 1381-1797 and 1814-1919. The arms bear the spear of St. Sergius, the patron saint of the city.
Until 1919 the arms showed the spear on the Austrian arms (in red a silver bar), with a chief with the imperial eagle. These arms were granted in 1467 and were abolished after Trieste became Italian in 1919.
