The People's Republic of China (PRC), located in East Asia and commonly known as China, is the most populous state in the world, with over 1.3 billion citizens.
China is divided into 22 provinces, 5 autonomous regions, 4 cities with province status and two special administrative regions. Below these are 333 prefecture-level regions, 2,862 county-level regions, 41,636 township-level regions and even more village-level regions.
None of these uses arms, except the special administrative regions.
The county does not use a coat of arms, only the above logo.
Heraldry is much more used in the two Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macau):
- Hong Kong
- University of Hong Kong
- Chinese University of Hong Kong
- Arms of schools and colleges in Hong Kong
- Heraldic stamps from Hong Kong
- Institutional heraldry of Hong Kong
- Ecclesiastical or Religous heraldry of Hong Kong
