 Heraldry and vexillology of Slovenia
The coat of arms of Carniola dates back to the 13th century, when it most probably evolved as a combination of the coats of arms of the noble houses of Andechs-Meran (eagle) and Spanheim (red-white checkerboard).
Under the Habsburgs, the Duchy of Carniola was the main Slovenian-populated crownland, and the white, blue and red from its coat of arms (the shield, the eagle and the crescent) were adopted as the Slovenian national colors in 1848.
Abandoned after 1918, with the passing of the Duchy of Carniola, the coat of arms was briefly resurrected from 1943 to 1945 as the symbol of the Slovenian auxilliary Axis forces.

The Austrian law of 1244 was not valid in Carniola; and the legal status of the Jews was defined by special charters granted to individuals by the rulers.
When, after the peace of Vienna (Oct. 14, 1809), Carniola became part of the French province of Illyria, Abraham Heimann of Memmelsdorf in Bavaria settled there and had to contend with the ill-will of the municipal authorities, but was protected by the French governor.
Subsequent reaction prevented for a long time the settlement of other Jews in the city; and it was not until the constitution of Dec. 21, 1867, gave the Jews civic equality that they again settled in Laibach.
