Modern Coat of Arms
Coat of arms of Pordenone (Italy):
ANCIENT (XIV century): two golden doors open on a blue field.
MODERN (XV century) two golden doors open on the sea. The field has the colors of the Austrian coat of arms, red/white/red, as given by the Emperor to the town at the beginning of the XV century. Surrounded by a wreath of laurel(?) and oak, and green-white-red ribbon.
FASCIST: the same as the modern with fascist symbol (fasces in the laurel(?) and oak wreath) on the top in a blue field.
