Coat of arms (crest) of Paraná

The arms of 1990.

Both arms show the same elements, in the base a sowing or harvesting farmer, symbol for agriculture and cultivation. The chief shows a rising sun and mountains with three peaks, symbolising the three Parana plateaus.

The crest shows a hawk (Harpi harpyja).

The arms are flanked by a branch of parana-pine and erva-mate tea.
