Coat of arms of Adjara

The coat of arms of the Autonomous Republic of Adjara is a shield divided in two by a wavy line. In the center is a red smaller shield of the Lesser Arms of Georgia, bearing a silver horseman (St. George) with a golden halo mounted on a silver horse and slaying a silver dragon with a golden-tipped, silver-shafted spear. The upper sector of the main shield bears a golden fortress on a green field and the lower one contains three golden coins on blue field.[1]

The coat of arms was adopted by the Supreme Council of Adjara in 2008. Its use is regulated by the Constitution of Adjara and the republic's special law.[1]
