Coat of arms of Stockholm

Coat of arms of Stockholm
Armiger City of Stockholm

The coat of arms of Stockholm was first used in Medieval seals and depicts the head of Swedish king Saint Eric.


Blue and yellow are the colours of Stockholm due to the use of blue and gold in the coat of arms of the city.

Saint Eric was only king for four years, but made a great impact and is considered the patron saint of both Sweden and its capital.
