Interpreting the Russia, Ukraine, Netherlands coat of arms

Posted by rod - 13.03.2014

Russian designer Ivan Belikov created these three illustrations which interpret the Russian, Ukraine and Dutch coat of arms. The main idea was to create an interpretation that would be based on general elements of coat of arms. The illustration has been made according to the description and historical references. I am looking forward to seeing more coat of arms from Ivan in the future.

‘Most historians agree that tryzub most probably depicts a stylized falcon which according to the Slavic mythology was the Primary god (Pershoboh).’
