PODGORICA (Подгорица)

(1946-1992 Titograd)

Arms of Podgorica

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

I have no information on the meaning or origin of these arms. Any information is welcome !

The previous arms were adopted in the 1970s.

The composition represents the Monument of a Partizan Fighter and the Queen Milena's bridge over the river Ribnica.

In the 19th century the city used the arms below, showing a ruin.

It represents Doclea, the ruins of the ancient Roman city on which Podgorica was built. The first name of Montenegro was Duklja (Doclea).
