In 2007, the state herald Clara Nevéus and the heraldic artist Vladimir Sagerlund published a book showing the national symbols of Sweden.

It´s a neat little book in Swedish, presenting every historical province with its coat of arms on a postament (wich it doesn’t have in ”real life”) with the province flowers, and supported by the province animal.

Stephen Coombs has written the english summary.

If you´re interested in symbols, this is a must-have-book.
