Arms of Greenland

The coat of arms of Greenland - in the Greenlandic version. The version in the royal arms and flag follows the heraldic tradition in raising the right forepaw, while the Greenlandic version raises the left forepaw, because real polar bears are left-handed. The blazon does not specify which forepaw is raised, so there is no conflict between the two versions.

Blazon of the Greenland Coat of Arms:  Azure a polar bear sejant erect proper.

Image based on the image from [ach82]. I used medium blue, instead of the pale shade used in the (known) flags with Coat of Arms.
