Arms (crest) of Jawa Barat
Official blazon
English blazon wanted


The shape of the shield is derived from the shields of the former colonial powers. The center of the arms shows a Kujang, a typical type of weapon from the Sunda islands and Java. The weapon is flanked by cotton and flax, two crops in the region. The base of the arms show the rivers, channels and dams on the lower right side, and the fertile ricefields (sawahs) in the lower left half (chequered quarter). The motto means : Richness for all and living in harmony.

Colonial arms

The arms were officially granted on February 17, 1932.


Gedeeld : I In azuur een Mercuriu staf van goud. II In goud drie padi-aren van sinopel naast elkander, waarvan de uitersten afgewend. Het schild gedekt met een gouden kroon van vijf bladeren. Schildhouders : Recht : een gouden leeuw getongd en genageld van keel. Links : een zilveren banteng met hoorns en hoeven van goud.

If this text appears, it means that background information is available, but that I have not yet had the time to add the information on these arms. Just [|mail me with the name of the town in the subject !] and I will add all information that I have !
