Heraldry of the World : The main resource for civic heraldry since 1996

Arms of countries, areas or provinces that do not exist anymore, are placed under the country in which the area is situated at this moment. For example, cities, which were granted arms during the Russian Empire, are now under the individual countries. Similarly, towns in the former German provinces of Prussia and Posen are placed under Poland, the South African Colonies and Homelands are under South Africa and Dutch East Indies are under Indonesia.

Present and former colonies and (semi-independent) overseas territories that do not form a single present country are listed under the parent country, except for the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which is listed separately.
