The coat of arms of Iraq features a prominent gold-black eagle, known as the Saladin eagle, with outstretched wings and bearing a shield on its chest and perched on a golden band bearing the Arabic words "جمهورية العراق" (Jumhuriyet Al-`Iraq), which means "Republic of Iraq." The shield is adorned with the Iraqi flag. The Saladin eagle is associated with 20th-century pan-Arabism and symbolizes the country's historical and cultural ties to the broader Arab world. The use of the national flag on the shield underscores Iraq's sovereignty and national identity. This coat of arms reflects Iraq's historical and regional connections, as well as its commitment to its Arab heritage and independence.
