There are a number of national symbols of Luxembourg, representing Luxembourg or its people in either official or unofficial capacities.

Note that, under Luxembourgian law, the term 'national emblem' (French: emblèmes nationaux) is a strictly-defined term that refers to only four of Luxembourg's official symbols of the state: the national anthem, the national flag, the national coat of arms, and the national civil ensign.[1] However, there are many other symbols, both official and unofficial, that symbolise the Luxembourgian nation in the public consciousness.
