  • white field, red eagle with yellow clover leaves on the wings, armed yellow, crowned with an electoral cap, holding a yellow sceptre and a sword proper, supporting on its chest a small blue escutcheon with an electoral sceptre (for Brandenburg).
Second row:
  • white field, a red griffin armed yellow (for Pomerania);
  • blue field, yellow demi-eagle hovering over a yellow scythe and a pair of crossed mining hammers, also yellow (for Upper Silesia).
Third row:
  • red field, a golden crown over two golden crosslets (for Danzig);
  • white field, a black elk's antler (unofficially used coat-of-arms for East Prussia).
