Danish coat of arms

The Coat of Arms of Denmark consists of a golden shield with three crowned blue lions and nine red hearts. The first documented use of the insignia was in the 1190s, and the current version was adopted under the reign of King Frederick VI in 1819.

The insignia is closely related to the coat of arms of Estonia and the coat of arms of the former Danish imperial possession of Schleswig-Holstein (which is now part of Germany).
