The Tryzub

This symbol is called the tryzub and is the Ukrainian coat of arms.  The image is a trident on a blue shield and was adopted in 1992 after the fall of communism.  Another aspect of the trident image is that it can also be viewed as a falcon descending from the sky.  Once this was pointed out to me I always seem to view the image that way.
