Coat of Arms of the President of the Republic of North Macedonia

Heraldry

The coat of arms of the President of the Republic of North Macedonia was adopted on 2 December 2009, at the initiative of the fourth president, Dr. Gjorge Ivanov.

The coat of arms is a red shield with a sun with eight rays, a motive taken from the state flag, the anthem and the current ‘coat of arms’. The shield is bordered with inverted colors. Below the shield there is a wreath of two crossed branches of the endemic Macedonian Oak (Quercus macedonica) with eight leaves and eight acorns. 

The coat of arms was made by Stojanche Velichkovski, Jovan Jonovski and Petar Gajdov, all members of the former Macedonian Heraldic Society, which ceased to exist since 2018.

In the process of making the coat of arms, the authors received expert support from Alexander Kurov from Germany, Viktor Lomantsov from Russia, Zeljko Heimer from Croatia and Stoyan Antonov from Bulgaria, all proven international experts on heraldry and vexillology.

More details about the process of making the coat of arms you can read in the ‘Macedonian Herald’ issue 4.

From today, 12 May 2019, the coat of arms will represent the fifth president of the Republic of North Macedonia, Stevo Pendarovski.
