Emblem o Bahrain
Although haein the appearance o a shield, the 2002 constitution speaks o an emblem an no a coat o airms. The shield contains a near identical design as that foond on the naitional banner, the ae difference being the hoist o the banner rotatit tae be displayed at the chief o the shield. The mantlin is red wi white interior, an displayed aroond the shield athoot a helm or torse in a manner unuisual tae heraldic practice. The five white indentations represent the five pillars o the Muslim faith.
