Arms (crest) of Mehedinți (county)

Official blazon

Un scut albastru încărcat cu un pod, având doi stâlpi de susținere și un grilaj dantelat, de aur. În fundal se zărește silueta unei hidrocentrale de argint, plutind pe două valuri ondulate, din același metal. În șef, pe azur, o albină de aur.


The arms were officially granted on September 27, 1999.

The golden bridge refers to the construction erected here in antiquity by Apollodorus of Damascus; the silver construction represents the Iron Gates Hydropower Plant, an allusion to the achievements of modern times; the bee, the old coat of arms of the county, appeared since 1715, reminds, on the one hand, the ancient occupation of the inhabitants, and on the other hand symbolizes the diligence of the people of these places.
