The dhow is a seembol o the maritime tradeetion o the kintra an is an aa foond in the naitional coats o airms o Qatar. The falcon is a seembol o the Banu Quraish line, tae which the prophet Muhammad belanged an is likwise foond in mony coats o airms o the Arabian Peninsula.
The coat o airms replaced an aulder emblem wi a falcon an twa crossed banners.
