Country name, national arms and date.

The coat of arms of Georgia partially based on the medieval arms of the Georgian royal house and features Saint George, the traditional patron saint of Georgia, riding a horse trampling upon a crawling dragon, whose head is pierced by the saint's spear. It has two lions rampant as supporters of the shield, which is surmounted with the royal crown of Georgia.

The motto below the shield reads as "Strength is in Unity" (Dzala Ertobashia, written in the Mkhedruli script of the Georgian alphabet, ძალა ერთობაშია).
