Heraldry of Smalandia

Kronoberg was formally granted its arms in 1944, however use of the same was already an established practice. It is a variation of the arms of Smalandia. Blazon: "Or, a lion rampant Gules langued and armed Azure holding in front paws a Crossbow of the second bowed and stringed Sable with a bolt Argent, standing on a tripple Mount Vert."
