    The National Coat of arms is in the corner, the Keys symbolise the the 2 Cathedrals: Saint Regina Cathedral and Saint Pierre Cathedral. The Oak symbolises the Rurality of the nation and the bag of wool symbolises how Nicoleizian agriculture is wool-based.

    Royal Coat of Arms: The crown is there because it's Royalty, the hedgehog is there as it is the national animal, and the Eagle is carried on from a former house, the large crown is red as it's the Regina Royalty in the throne.

    Romain Coat of Arms: The Arms depict 2 lions that represent Regina and Portland. In the center there is the Royal Coat of Arms of Romain, even though their Royal Family is long since gone. Also the crown does not represent the crown of Romain, it represents the crown of Regina. The wring says "I will Maintain" in French (because it is the most French influenced region, thanks to its neighbour, Miraco.

    Regina Coat of Arms: The Arms depicts a shield with a golden eagle in front of a blue background. The shield is surrounded by King Nicolaevich's Imperial mantle, filled with bees. The shield is topped by a golden eagle crown, surrounding the shield is the Legion of Saint Regina. Cross behind the shield are the Scepter of justice and mercy.

    Portland Coat of Arms: This depicts dolphins as there are Dolphines on the East Coast. Also the Crests represent the blood line the Saint Pierre Monarchy had with Aleonoria and Miraco. The blue is symbolic to the Royalty of Saint Pierre, which - is opposed to the red colour of Regina.
