THE COAT OF ARMS OF NORWAY
English: The coat of arms of Norway has the following blazon: "gules, a lion rampant or, crowned and bearing an axe with blade argent". The state uses a variant consisting of the crowned escutcheon only, and the version used by the monarch has the escutcheon placed within an ermine mantling, and includes the Order of St. Olav:

This coat of arms was drawn based on its blazon which – being a written description – is free from copyright. Any illustration conforming with the blazon of the arms is considered to be heraldically correct. Thus several different artistic interpretations of the same coat of arms can exist. The design officially used by the armiger is likely protected by copyright, in which case it cannot be used here.
Individual representations of a coat of arms, drawn from a blazon, may have a copyright belonging to the artist, but are not necessarily derivative works.
