The Seal of the Generalitat de Catalunya is the symbol that represents the Generalitat de Catalunya institutions and related organisms.

It was designed by Bartomeu Llongueras during the Second Spanish Republic. Traditionally, St George's Cross had been used as the Generalitat's seal.

After Franco's dictatorship and the reinstauration of Catalonia's self-government, it was reinstated, albeit in a slightly modified version,[1] in order to avoid confusions when placing the seal upside down (described by statute in 1981, decree 7/1981).

In some situations, a bicolour version is preferred, instead of the traditional tricolour one.
