Three Crowns in Stockholm

Three Crowns (Tre Kronor) are a national emblem of Sweden, depicted in the Swedish Coat of Arms in the form of three gilded coronets ordered two above and one below with a blue background.  They crop up elsewhere around Sweden, including on the uniforms of the Swedish Police and on the shirts of the men’s national ice hockey team.

Here you can see the three crowns  atop the Stockholm City Hall (built 1911-1923).
