The coat of arms of the city of Gda?sk (Polish: Herb Gda?ska, German: Wappen Danzigs), in its current form, dates back to 1410 and Banderia Prutenorum. The coat of arms is very similar to the flag of Gda?sk. It depicts two silver crosses on a red shield above each other, above which hovers a golden crown. The greater arms also has two lions as supporters and Gda?sk motto.
Coat of arms of Gda?sk was also used by several noble families of Russia, including Counts Sheremetevs, Lodygins, and Konovnitsyns. In case of the Sheremetev and Konovnitsyn coat of arms, it refers to the legendary origin of the family from the leader of one of the Prussian tribes. A similar design is used by Oliwa.
Republic of Danzig used same symbols. Between the world wars, the Free City of Danzig adopted its arms, defined in the Constitution (Die Verfassung der Freien Stadt Danzig vom 17. November 1920). Both pattée (tatzenkreuz) and common crosses (gemeines Kreuz) were used.
