Pogoń Litewska is a Polish coat of arms originating from the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Appearing in medieval Lithuanian heraldry, it was later used by several szlachta families in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, primarily by those of Gediminid origin. The present Lithuanian coat of arms (Vytis) as well as the coat of arms of Belarus between 1991 and 1995, (Pahonia) are modern heraldic representation of the historic Lithuanian symbol.
