The country does not uses a coat of arms and the above symbol was adopted in May 2011.

Before independence the amrs below were sometimes used by the autonomous Government of Southern Sudan. These arms are similar to the arms of neighbouring Kenya and Uganda. It shows a traditional African shield with the design of the flag of Southern Sudan, crossed by lances. The shield was supported by a shoebill and a rhinoceros.
