The Tyrolean Eagle

Alternative Coat of arms of Tirol.

The Tiroler coat of arms displays a heraldic eagle in a silver shield: the Tyrolean eagle. The Tyrolean eagle is a golden-crowned and reinforced red eagle with golden wing bars ending in trefoils.

Seals dating from 1205 display the Tiroler eagle. The oldest coloured representations, however, come from the years 1271 and 1286. The seal images originate from the time of Albert IV, whose reign lasted from 1202 to 1253. The garland on the eagle's head was added around 1567.

At times, the coat of arms was a symbol of the monarchy.
