PRINCIPALITY OF SAMOS

Arms of Principality of Samos

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

In 1834 the island of Samos was granted self-government as a semi-independent state under the Ottoman Empire, the Principality of Samos (Greek: Ηγεμονία της Σάμου). On March 2, 1913 it was unified with Greece.

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