The emblem used by the Palestinian National Authority and the state of Palestine features the Pan-Arab colours of the Palestinian flag on a shield carried by the Eagle of Saladin. Below it flies a scroll with the Arabic text "فلسطين", "Palestine".
A 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 UN on November 29, 2012 and the renaming of the Palestinian National Authority to "State of Palestine" by presidential decree in January 2013.3

Now everything from official stationary and stamps to insignia on Palestinian foreign missions will bear this new symbol of statehood."
