The National Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Talossa, as maintained and described by the Royal College of Arms, is an image of a shield with the Chinese symbol for "Ben", surrounded by a circle inscribed with the date of the founding of the nation and topped by a crown. Formally, it is "argent the Chinese character 'Ben' sable," mantled by "an annulet azure fimbriated or bearing the words 'Regipäts Talossán Kingdom * 26.12.1979 *' Or," and topped with "a royal crown proper."

History

The national coat of arms has gone through a long series of variations over the years, some of which are recounted in King Ben's 1992 pamphlet, Clashing Symbols.
