When the current coat of arms was revealed to the public, many Disparueans wondered as to why several Pokémon characters were used. Even though the Government has made no comment on this, it seems that the Pokémon-themed coat of arms is an inside joke for the members of the Disparu Committee. Critics who have noticed this have criticized this as an attempt to create a cult of personality around the members of the Committee.
The coat of arms is the centrepiece of the current Disparuean coin set, which was originally introduced on 26 December 2010 and revised shortly after the re-proclamation of Disparu. All of the coins' reverse designs feature a section of the coat of arms. A majority of the coat of arms is formed by piecing together all four coin denominations.
The coat of arms is featured on many government offices and institutions, such as court buildings.
The shield features a white cross on a dark blue background, with a white fleur-de-lis charged quarterly on it, reminiscent of the flag of Quebec. The shield is mantled by red and white maple leaves, and has a compartment made from the fleur-de-lis. Both symbolize Disparu's cultural origins, Canada and France, respectively.
The shield is supported by a Glaceon on the left, representing Disparu's Arctic regions and its winters, and a Leafeon on the right, representing Disparu's lush forests. Both hold gold-tipped silver lances bearing the flags of Canada and Quebec, respectively. The flags represent Disparu's nearly five hundred year history.
The shield formerly featured different symbols; however, they were all replaced by the fleur-de-lis following the Second Quiet Revolution. Following the abolition of the Monarchy, the royal crown that originally surmounted the shield has also been removed. The mantling and compartment were not part of the original design, and were only added later on.
