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

Under Luxembourgian law, 'national emblem' (French: emblèmes nationaux) is strictly-defined as 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.
