Arms (crest) of Dolj (county)

Official blazon

Un scut triunghiular cu marginile rotunjite, tăiat și retezat. În cartierul unu, în câmp roșu, un leu rampant, încoronat, de aur, armat și limbat cu negru, ținând o sabie de aur, în pal. În cartierul doi, în câmp roșu, un snop de grâu, de aur. În cartierul trei, în câmp albastru, un pește de argint, orientat spre dreapta.


The arms were officially granted on May 29, 2003.

The lion is the old symbol of Oltenia, as a Romanian historical province, and is a corollary of the virtues of the inhabitants of these lands.

The sheaf of wheat represents the wealth of this county and the traditional occupation of its inhabitants.

The fish is a traditional heraldic element, inscribed in the old interwar coat of arms of the county, and represents the richness of the waters of this area, and by extrapolation it can become a symbol of the agility of the people from these lands.
