Germany Coat of Arms:
Flag of Germany

The country's coat of arms (featuring a dominate eagle) is said to have orginated around 1200.

Over the centuries many variations have been adopted for military and political reasons, but the eagle has remained as the central theme. The modern seal features the same colors as the German flag. The eagle is also used on the German one Euro and two Euro coins.
