Are those the Prussian arms? I did not think Prussia ever used a double-headed eagle?

It's used by lots of countries!:

The double-headed eagle was used by the Holy Roman Empire and Austria-Hungary. It was not used by Prussia. Here is a link to the Prussian arms:

And what do we see on top of the crown? ;)

Warren 05-02-2007 11:51 PM

It's certainly a curiosity. The Crown is Imperial Austria, the black cross underneath it is the Prussian Iron Cross, and the Prussian Arms (single-headed eagle) are in the very centre where the red and white Arms of Austria would normally be.
I have no idea on what occasions this amalgam of Prussia and the Holy Roman Empire/Austria would have been used.

Hope for the future? A Hohenzollern marries a Habsburg and the monarchy is restored in Prussia and Austria?

Prussian Royal Anthems, Hymns and Marches
 
I found a march/song with the title 'Wir wollen unseren alten Kaiser Wilhelm wieder haben' (we want our old kaiser wilhelm back) by German singer Heino. The song is on the melody of Richard Henrion's 'Fehrbelliner Reitermarschs' from 1893.

YouTube - Wir wollen unseren alten KAISER WILHELM wiederhaben!

Marengo 06-24-2008 07:42 AM

And now the Emperor's hymn, which sounds familiar (the Royal hymn of Norway has the same melody):

YouTube - Heil dir im Siegerkranz

Text:

1. Heil dir im Siegerkranz, Herrscher des Vaterlands! Heil, Kaiser, dir! I: Fühl in des Thrones Glanz Die hohe Wonne ganz, Liebling des Volks zu sein! Heil Kaiser, dir! :I

2. Nicht Roß, nicht Reisige Sichern die steile Höh', Wo Fürsten steh'n: I:Liebe des Vaterlands, Liebe des freien Manns Gründen den Herrscherthron Wie Fels im Meer.:I

3. Heilige Flamme, glüh', Glüh' und erlösche nie Fürs Vaterland! I:Wir alle stehen dann Mutig für einen Mann Kämpfen und bluten gern Für Thron und Reich!:I

4. Handel und Wissenschaft Heben mit Mut und Kraft Ihr Haupt empor! I:Krieger- und Heldentat Finden ihr Lorbeerblatt Treu aufgehoben dort, An deinem Thron!:I

5. Dauernder stets zu blüh'n Weh' unsre Flagge kühn Auf hoher See! I:Wie so stolz und hehr Wirft über Land und Meer Weithin der deutsche Aar Flammenden Blick.:I

6. Sei, Kaiser Wilhelm, hier Lang' deines Volkes Zier, Der Menschheit Stolz! I:Fühl' in des Thrones Glanz, Die hohe Wonne ganz, Liebling des Volks zu sein! Heil, Kaiser, dir!:I

Original recording (+ clips):

And the prussian national anthem, which seems to be a mix of a march with the 'Heil dir im Siegerkranz':

YouTube - PRUSSIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM, "Preußenlied"

Marengo 06-24-2008 07:49 AM

And a march called' Preussens Gloria':

YouTube - Preussens Gloria

-
Performed on the Red Square in Moscow:

Die Langen Kerls: Prussian Parade March
 
I really appreciate how this video shows different military regiments from various regions/provinces throughout Germany (during the late 18th & 19th centuries).

The fictitious coat of arms above are those of the Imperial Teutonic Order.
These are a mix of the Imperial Austrian, Holy roman and German Empire.
The Teutonic order was founded in the 12th century to manage German hospitals during the Crusades in Jerusalem and safeguard the passage for German pilgrims. After a lot of development they still exist as a religious order in Austria. http://www.deutscher-orden.at/ These arms above represent a military Teutonic Order, which does not exist anymore.

Interesting.... It's also the same tune as England's "God Save The Queen [or King]."

Found these in an encylopedia of flags. In the first file, the one on the left is that of the German Emperor and the one on the right that of the Empress used from 1871-90; the second file is the Emperor and Empress's from 1890-1981, with the only real change being the eagles on the yellow background.

:previous:Here is the second file mentioned above. Sorry, my computer was having problems at the time..:smile:

This arms appears on Wikipedia as those of the German Empire. Perhaps it has something to do with the Austro-Prussian rivalry?

He's right.:graduate: This Imperial Eagle is the symbol of the Knights of the Teutonic Order. Since the actual knights don't exist anymore, the Eagle is not used anymore. This Imperial Eagle combines elements from Prussia, Germany, Austria, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Byzantine Empire.
It's found on this site:
