Coat of arms of Karelia
The oldest remained image of the coat of arms of Karelia is situated in a series of colour drawings of coats of arms of Swedish provinces in 1562, contained in the Manuscript Collections of Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.
The next oldest known image of the coat of arms of Karelia from 1581 can be seen in the Uppsala Cathedral at the tomb of Swedish King Gustav Vasa where it coexists with the images of coats of arms of Duchy of Finland, as well as other provinces of the Kingdom.
