Greece 5 Drachmai {1954-1965} Paul I FEATURING front: Greek crowned arms (shield with cross) with the defenders 'Heracleses' of the crown each holding a club The coat of arms of Greece comprises a white Greek cross on a blue escutcheon, surrounded by two laurel branches. It has been in use in its current form since 1975. Prior to the adoption of the current coat of arms, Greece used a number of different designs, some of which were not heraldic; the first heraldic design was introduced in 1832 and its main element, the blue shield with the white cross, has been in use in one form or another since then. The current coat of arms of Greece derives from the Greek national flag, which was adopted in March 1822. The cross symbolises Eastern Orthodox Christianity. Blue and white have been interpreted as symbolising the colours of the famed Greek sky and sea.
