Coat of arms (crest) of Pirita

Official blazon

Sinisel kilbil hõbedane rõngasrist, milles viis purpurset sõõri 1+3+1. Rõngasristi all hõbedane laineline palk.


The arms were officially granted on December 20, 1994.

The arms are based on the symbol of the Brigittine nuns, as the area developed around a monastery from that order founded in 1407. The five red balls refer to the 5 wounds of Christ. The wavy base symbolises the local Piritajõgi river.
