Administrative division

Ethiopia is divided into nine ethnically based administrative countries (kililoch, sing. kilil) and subdivided into sixty-eight zones and two chartered cities: Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa. It is further subdivided into 550 woredas ('municipalities') and several special woredas.


Ethiopia does not use a coat of rms, but the above symbol or emblem.

As far as I know none of the subdivisions or cities use arms, but some do use a logo.
