The coat of arms of Palestine may refer to the emblem used by the the State of Palestine and Palestinian National Authority (PNA), or to the emblem used by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).

PNA and state emblem

The emblem used by the Palestinian National Authority and the state of Palestine features the Pan-Arab colours of the Palestinian flag on a shield carried by the Eagle of Saladin. Below it flies a scroll with the Arabic text "فلسطين", "Palestine".

A alternate version stating "السلطة الفلسطينية", or "The Palestinian Authority" was used by the Palestinian National Authority,[2] alongside the version stating "Palestine", but this was discontinued following the upgrade of the State of Palestine to a non-member state status in the UN on November 29, 2012 and the renaming of the Palestinian National Authority to "State of Palestine" by presidential decree in January 2013.[3]

PLO emblem

The emblem of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) shows the Palestinian flag above a map of Palestine under the British Mandate (present-day Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza strip).
