The Royal Hashemite Crown
Symbolizing the monarchy of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the golden crown is composed of five arches with beaded design, fanning out from beneath its pinnacle and attached to the base with a relief design recalling rubies and emeralds. On top of the base rest five lotus flowers, denoting purity. The Royal Hashemite Crown is adorned at the top by the tip of a spear that represents the Hashemite banner.
The Royal Hashemite Crown rests on the sash that represents the Royal Hashemite Throne. The crimson velvet sash, lined with white silk, signifies sacrifice and purity. The sash is trimmed in a fringe of golden threads and gathered on either side with golden tasselled cords to reveal a white silk lining.
The Two Flags
Each flag represents the flag of the Great Arab Revolt. The length of each is double its width and each is divided horizontally into three equal parts: the upper black panel, the middle green panel and the lower white panel. The crimson triangle occupies the front. Its base is equal to the width of the flag while its length is equal to half that of the flag.
This emblem symbolises power, fortitude and loftiness. Its colours signify the banner and turban of the Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). The eagle stands on the globe, its wings touching the flags on both ends. The eagle’s head faces its right.
Blue in colour, the globe signifies the emergence of Islamic civilisation.
A bronze shield is decorated with a chrysanthemum, a common motif in Arab art and architecture. The shield is placed in front of the globe, symbolising the defence of the right. Golden swords and spears, bows and arrows protrude from either side of the shield and the globe.
Gold Wheat Ears & Palm Frond
Encircling the shield from its base are three ears of wheat on the right and a palm frond to the left. They are attached to the ribbon of the Al Nahda First Order Medal.

- On the right:
“Abdullah I ibn Al Hussein Bin Aoun”
- In the middle:
“King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan”
- On the left:
“Who seeks support and guidance from God”
