The coat of arms of Slovakia is a richly symbolic design featuring a dominant white double cross on a red shield. The white double cross is a national symbol, known as the Cross of Lorraine, representing the Christian heritage and faith of the Slovak people. Below the cross are three blue hills, symbolizing the Tatra, Fatra, and Mátra mountain ranges that grace the Slovak landscape. This emblem reflects the nation's strong religious ties, its historical significance, and its deep connection to the natural beauty of its mountainous terrain.
