    Flag of Jordan

  • Coat of Arms: Jordan's coat of arms consists of a black eagle (symbolizing power, might and loftiness) standing on top of a bronze shield supported by two flags of Jordan, spears, swords and bows and arrows. Below the shield are two branches of wheat, a palm branch, and the decorative order of al-Nahda.

    The phrase depicted on the right of the al-Nahda reads, "Abdullah II bin Al Hussein bin Aoun," (Aoun, the great grandfather of Al Sharif Al Hussein bin Ali); in the middle, "King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan," and to the left, "Who seeks support and guidance from God."
