PNA and state emblem

The emblem used by the Palestinian National Authority and the State of Palestine features the pan-Arab colors of the Palestinian flag on a shield carried by the Eagle of Saladin. Below it flies a scroll with the Arabic text "فلسطين‏", "Palestine".

An alternate version stating "السلطة الفلسطينية‏" or "The Palestinian Authority" was used by the Palestinian National Authority,[2] alongside the version stating "Palestine", but this was discontinued following the upgrade of the State of Palestine to a non-member state status in the United Nations on 29 November 2012 and the renaming of the Palestinian National Authority to "State of Palestine" by presidential decree in January 2013.[3]

PLO emblem

The emblem of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) shows the Palestinian flag above a map of Palestine under the British Mandate (present-day Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip).
