This coat o airms wis in uise bi the Democratic Republic o Georgie throughoot its existence in 1918-1921. Though the uise o Saunt George as Georgie's patron saunt wis bi then a lang tradition, there wur some discussions aboot ither possibilities, the major ane being Amiran, as the seembol o Georgie's fecht for freedom frae the Roushie Empire. Housomeivver, a decision wis then made in favor o saunt George. Restored in 1991, this coat o airms wis replaced bi the current ane in 2004.
Afore 1917, when Georgie wis pairt o the Roushie Empire, the Georgian coat o airms appeared on the Greater Coat o Airms o the Roushie Empire, as pairt o the coat o airms o Caucasus. It showed then as the center inescutcheon, an read as follaes:
