The coat of arms of Greenland - in the Greenlandic version.
The version in the royal arms and flag follows the heraldic
tradition in raising the right forepaw, while the Greenlandic
version raises the left forepaw, because real polar bears are
left-handed. The blazon does not specify which forepaw is raised,
so there is no conflict between the two versions.

I used medium blue, instead of the pale shade used in the (known)
flags with Coat of Arms.
