The coat of arms of Cambodia, or the royal arms of Cambodia, a symbolic representation of the Cambodian monarchy, features a light blue shield with the prominent Unalome Sign, a Khmer version of the Aum symbol, positioned above a sword, placed on two ceremonial pedestalled platters (phan). A laurel wreath is superimposed on the Royal Order of Cambodia, elegantly adorning the base of the shield, set against a white mantle with golden fringes and ornate golden decorations. The shield is crowned with the Royal Crown, highlighted by a radiant diamond emanating rays of light from its apex. Supporting the shield are two royal animals: the Gajasingha, a lion with an elephant trunk, on the left, and the Rajasingha, the royal lion, on the right. These creatures hold two royal five-tiered umbrellas representing the King and the Queen, one on each side, as they stand gracefully upon a blue ribbon bearing the inscription: "ព្រះចៅក្រុងកម្ពុជា" in Khmer, translating to "Ruler of the Kingdom of Cambodia." This emblem serves as a testament to the country's rich royal history, cultural heritage, and the enduring significance of its monarchy.
